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 email@example.com 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.

I think the time is ripe for Mozilla to advertise, as a first class product. Even though the browser wars are long gone, the fact remains that Moz is a superior browser and when people know the truth they might be willing to pay for the browser and buy it. Instead of having a number of addins to IE, it would definitely appeal to the users that everything is bundled into one. So I think mozilla should advertise, may be not a big bash, but a controlled spending.
