Monday October 20th, 2003

OpenSourceAdvocate writes: "Industry surveys show that Mozilla holds 1-2 percent of the browser market, and Internet Explorer has the vast majority.

"A Brazilian programmer just released a script to automatically download and install the latest version of Mozilla Firebird, Mozilla Thunderbird, and Gaim on any Windows computer.

"The goal is to increase the internet security via software diversity. Open Source Software is less vulnerable to Windows virus and worms.

"Developers are invited to download, modify and redistribute the source code. (The script is open source and dedicated to the public domain.)"

The machine used to build them was down for one reason or another. It looks like it just came back up though, as (on some mirrors, some don't seem to have picked it up yet) there's an October 21 nightly build for Win32 available. Thanks to whoever was responsible for getting this back on track :).
