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.

I've followed Mozilla's development since the beginning and I for one couldn't remember what JWZ has done until he quite.

"Ah well. 30 programmers outside Netscape contributed to the project. Microsost had/has more people working on IE than netscape has employees. 30 people. 30. Three Zero. This is as "big profile" an open source project as you'll ever get. 30 people. Did any of you expect it to suceeed?"

And what has changed in Ie 4 to IE 5, nothing much. I know I have and I am using both. Maybe MS should contribute to Mozilla and use it for IE 6.
