I think anybody who gives somebody marginal freeware as a gift should receive a restraining order.

The Mozilla Suite (and its browser component) is a fine product -- and, of course, it would just accompany the presents I give. Now I could see, however, a restraining order being appropriate for those who wanted to give MSIE on a CD.

The ISO is 20 MB and includes Polish versions of Mozilla Suite 1.4.1, Mozilla Firebird 0.7, and Mozilla Thunderbird 0.3.
