Senior VP and CTO of AMS: Mozilla Firebird is a Tier 1, Best of Breed Open Source Application

Saturday February 7th, 2004

Blake writes: "The Senior VP and CTO of IT consulting business AMS has written an article for casually identifying Mozilla Firebird as a tier 1, 'best of breed' open source application with the likes of Linux and Apache:

"'The first category, Tier 1, consists of "Best of Breed" open source offerings. This category includes products like Linux, the Apache Web Server, Samba, the Mozilla Firebird browser, and the Perl scripting language. These products, widely tested and largely believed to be virtually risk-free, are commonly chosen for their technical strengths. Most consider these products to be safe, and many companies today use them with few problems. In fact, many consciously choose such products over commercial proprietary alternatives regardless of price.'"

Mozilla Firebird is 0.8 but shared most of its code on Mozilla 1.6. So it's over version 1 for me. I've used Mozilla long way before 1.0 and firebird is a stable and mature product to me. OK, its UI is changing a little bit. But Windows's UI is also changing.
