Full Article Attached Evaluating Commercial Open Source Projects

Thursday April 22nd, 1999

A recent Forbes article characterized Mozilla as a "flop". The article had so many inaccuracies that I felt a rebuttal was required. At the same time, I felt that some light needed to be shed on the differences between commercial Open Source projects and "all volunteer" Open Source projects. What follows (click "Full Article" below) is a rebuttal to the assertions in the Forbes article and my opinion on what can reasonably be expected from a commercial Open Source project.

As always, the opinions are my own, and do not reflect the opinions of (which MozillaZine is not affiliated with).

#14 Mozilla has failed.

It is sad but true...

There is no way that Mozilla will be able to compete with Microsoft in the browser arena.

Mozillazine is nothing more than front to thwart negative public opinion on Mozilla... they want the last word on the matter.

Best of luck...
