In addition to including binaries of Firebird 0.7 and Thunderbird 0.3 on the cover-disc, the programs get a short review too (under the section heading The best new Open Source software on the planet! — I presume next month they'll do the best OSS on Mars...). They include the following: 'Both apps... work superbly as desktop-independent Internet apps.' The article suggests that both products have 'rough edges' and are in need of 'work on the running speed' before they reach mainstream. Although the magazine has a web site, it does not publish material from current magazines there."
