Slashdot today asked "Which Organizations Have Standardized on Mozilla?" A lot of good stories and ideas about trying to get an organization to switch to Mozilla based solutions.

You think that's bad? There's several cases where years of geek-philosophical rambling has meant that Mozilla doesn't support HTML 4.01 properly (like aligning and/or styling table columns/column-groups).

It's a perfect example of why design-by-committee sucks balls - every project needs one or two friendly ruthless dictators to settle decisions like this so everyone can fix a problem and move on. It's how Moz-Firebird went from idea to implementation so quickly.
