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).

Why say mozilla lags behind it's competitors (which is only microsoft. ) In what way does it lag?? - well none!

Have you even tried a nightly-build?, everything is getting implemented and fixed in a extreme rate. You notice great differences every week and it even beat IE in some areas. Then a pre-alpha can beat a fitht version of another browser its relly not a failiure, get real!!!!
