MozNGW: Mozilla-Based Client for Novell GroupWise

GroupWise is Novell's corporate communication and collaboration tool. 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.


#2 Sounds like a Lawsuit?? Doubtful.

Microsoft has better things to do then go after someone using a one of their icons in an app. Do you have any idea how many apps out their use icons that look similar to "native" MS icons in their apps? It must be in the thousands at a minimum. Heck the theme for Firefox, its basically an exact copy of the Internet Explorer theme with some of the colors changed. Also look at the picture of Groupwise at the bottom of this page <http://www.novell.cz/prod…roupwise/gw65zaklady.html> The icons that this apps uses look exactly like the ones that Novell used in its native Groupwise app. So No, Novell doesn't have any legal liability for this. Microsoft will be going after a project like this <http://www.xpde.com/> LONG before they start tackling apps which use an icon or two from XP.
