Full Article Attached Mozilla Foundation Reaches Agreement with E-FLO to Begin Offering Mozilla CDs

Sunday August 10th, 2003

In a message to the Mozilla Marketing mailing list (subscribe by sending a blank email to marketing-public-request@mozilla.org with 'subscribe' in the subject line), Bart Decrem has announced that the Mozilla Foundation is partnering with E-FLO to sell Mozilla CDs online. E-FLO is the company that currently handles the sale of Netscape 7.x on CD. When the discs begin shipping (around the time of the Mozilla 1.5 release), they will probably contain the latest stable Mozilla Application Suite milestone and hopefully also preview releases of Mozilla Firebird and Mozilla Thunderbird. The CDs are likely to retail for under $10, including shipping and handling, with international orders costing a couple of dollars more. The Mozilla Foundation's agreement with E-FLO is exclusive in the regions that E-FLO will sell the discs, meaning that while others will be free to create and distribute Mozilla CDs, only the E-FLO product will be promoted on mozilla.org.

Mozilla sorely needs any funds it can get to put into real, major and costly work such as layout and perfecting the GRE. While we need to advertise to end-users who have never heard of us, in the end it might be better to attract corporate sponsors by producing a superior product.
