Full Article Attached Mozilla Firebird Hottest Pick in UK 'Linux Format' Magazine

Sunday July 27th, 2003

Issue 43 of the UK Linux Format magazine (August 2003) features Mozilla Firebird in its Hot Picks section, which showcases "the best open source software on the planet". Firebird receives the Hottest Pick award, singling it out as the best piece of software of the issue. The review, which focuses on the 0.6 release, can be found on page 40 of the magazine and the 0.6 source code is included on the accompanying coverdisc. The article is not on the Linux Format website (the most recent feature in the archives is from issue 36) so we've reproduced it here for your reading pleasure. If you like what you see, UK and international subscriptions are available from 54 for 13 issues.

you mean the linux fornat mag isn't open source ;)

i read this in the 4th paragraph: <i>Mozilla's coders never intended their app to be an end-user product that was the job of Netscape et al. Firebird wants to bring control back to the user, </i>

control back to the user.... as long as that user isn't one of those dreaded 'end-users'. can anyone explain?
