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.

Two big shots leave and suddenly the rest of you panic? Wot is this?

They were 2 and you are hundreds! This is OSS and if you don't do the job then who will?

BTW Jamie had been a depressed naysayer (yay Kovu!) for quite some time.

One more thing. If NS didn't pay you to program this code, would you do it in your own time? if you answer is NO, then this isn't really a project by the people for the people. If your answer is YES then no resignations of depressed people can stop you.

My dream is that you ship this browser and XUL becomes a script for more programs than you thought possible. Also, I imagine rel 5.5 will be awesome. 5.0 will have established the basis for fame, 5.5 will deliver greater features and benefits. It will bring fortune.

To put it simly. 5.0 establishes the playing field. Then 5.5 must deliver what no one else can - truly new and awesome products on this platform.

No resignations can stop you now, only you can stop yourselves!
