The DoJ has given a thumbs-up to the AOL/Netscape/Sun acquisition/merger/strategic alliance. You can read about it at and at Infoworld.

More than anything else, this means that Netscape now has money to take on Microsoft, and I say it's about time. AOL has expressed the desire to let NS, and Mozilla, basically alone, and now that NS is no longer broke I can hardly wait to see what happens.

The funniest thing about NS and the whole open source thing is that MS forced NS into it by trying, successfully, to kill them and their revenue flow. Now that the open source floodgates have opened, friends and neighbors, I think it's time for the Mozilla (with Linux and DOJ in tow) to chomp on some MS hiney! Can you say hallalluja (however it's spelled!)!
