MozNGW: Mozilla-Based Client for Novell GroupWise

The native Windows client is, in the words of RedbackSystems, "the fat kid that fell out of the ugly tree, and hit every branch on the way down." MozNGW, which was originally going to be based on Opera, is intended to rectify this. As well as MozNGW, RedbackSystems also has several other products, most of which will eventually be rolled into their XULU cross-platform application framework.

This looks like an interesting project, and it's definitely a great example of the ease with which Mozilla allows developers to build cross-platform UI's, but from the screenshots it looks like they're using Microsoft's icons. Sounds like a lawsuit if I ever heard one. I wonder if Novell has any legal liability for this?

On another note, does anyone know the status of the GRE? I think it would be fantastic if projects like MozNGW could build their interface as an extension to the bare-bones Gecko runtime rather than having to rely on Firefox or the suite.
