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.

JWZ's attitude is too self centered for a community project, that is the long and the short of it. His ego is stuck on being the 20th employee hired at netscape...oh well. No loss. JWZ had dreams thousands of developers in his head when he started the Mozilla project and when the developers didn't come right away well then fuck 'em i quit I'm out of here. Figure it out mozilla will never draw the developer base of a linux or apache because its a scratch that is already itched on many platforms for free. All i have to say is that you are a quitter so fuck you JWZ.
