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).

#46 what?

Looks like you threw out a flame-bait, Mozilla is the worse thing you can do against microsoft, It's open, and developed relatively open and its goal is to be supporting standards 100%. And luckely they will end upp with microsofts domination attemts squashed and wiped out.

How about that, troll?
