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.

With the merger, JWZ either got (a) tons of money or (b) shafted. Either of these are a good reason to leave. I read his speil, and it seems like he wanted to leave a year ago, but he gave it another year because of the open-source stuff. Then he wasn't patient enough to wait for a release. The rest of the story is in his explanation. (This is not a criticism BTW, just a guess at a bigger picture.)
