JWZ Resigns

Thursday April 1st, 1999

It is a bittersweet day for the Mozilla community, as while the first anniversary party for Mozilla is on going, News.com is reporting, and Jamie Zawinski has confirmed, that he is leaving AOL/Netscape, as well as the Mozilla Organization.

This comes as a blow, as Jamie was one of the key leaders of Mozilla.org, and brought about its formation in the first place. Jamie will be missed, and we wish him luck.

Yes, Gates is smiling today. This is a big black eye for AOL/Netscape, and that probably makes Mr. Gates glad. I hope Case and Company is learning a lesson from this. He stands to lose more than just jwz if he doesn't watch it.

Mozilla lives on, though! Let's do it for the rest of us. Show that Open Source can work like jwz said it could. Remember that unthinkable alternative and consider how god damn far we've come! Let's get it going now...
