MozillaZine

Two Mozilla Articles

Wednesday April 21st, 1999

Two more Mozilla articles came out today. CNet continues to try to light a match under the Mozilla project, with a report on the pulling of the Instant Messaging API that appeared at Mozilla.org yesterday. BusinessWeek Online also has a positive piece on Mozilla (probably one of the first in the mainstream press). And it mentions MozillaZine! In fact, more than that, I spoke with the writer at length about some of the misconceptions about the Mozilla project. He was very interested, and took a decidedly different tone with his piece than has been prevalent in the press recently.

Linux will *never* displace Windows as the client-side OS of choice.

Mozilla will *never* displace IE... if Mozilla even gets the damn thing done.

Netscape failed... not because of Microsoft... but because the *fucked* up.

They came out of the gate cocky, arrogant, and boasted of Netscapes threat to Windows. Give me a break... Netscape?... a threat to Windows? They fucked up by buying into all of McNealy's hype about Java.

I'll keep my fingers crossed... but I sure as hell aren't going to hold my breath!

Cheers,
