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.

You are replying to this message

you rule snowshoe guy, not because I get your point exactly--stream of consciousness if fine but hard to fathom--but you get your it'ss and itss and theirs and theres right and can disagree with someone without hostility and saying LOL.

P.S., I agree about the HUGE picture on the homepage. Okay, ego. Okay, incoherent computer jargon. You guys are developers and yet I can understand most of you. Will we ever hear from the two now tip-toeing through the daisies again? Do we care? Anyone else leaving should do so now so AOL can replace them in short order with those who want to roll down their sleeves and take on that final stretch.

The most beautiful thing of all of this is that if Microsoft had not forced Netscape to give Communicator away free, Mozilla would most likely not exist today. Let's make 'em regret it. Whiny cowards take heed.
