Michael Robertson Says Supports Mozilla Financially

Wednesday August 6th, 2003

Mart Rootamm points us towards an interview with CEO Michael Robertson, in which the outspoken entrepreneur states that his company is a financial supporter of the Mozilla project. Robertson says: "When it comes to supporting the open-source community, we're good about putting our code back into the open-source initiative. We're also financial supporters of many of the popular initiatives — Debian, KDE, Mozilla, Wine. We contribute real dollars to them. I would contend that the Linux community needs companies that are profitable, so they can keep funneling money into these organizations and encourage them to keep improving their product."

Because that is an additional way for them to protect their trademark against MS Windows trademark infringement lawsuit. The organization that produces Open Office call itself and they always abbreviate their name as OOo for the same reason (there is another company called Open Office).
