Jesse Berst on Mozilla

Tuesday May 4th, 1999

Jesse Berst has an article on Open Source, in which he devotes a sentence to Mozilla. However, his thoughts seem to have come directly from Jamie Zawinski (like the thoughts of so many other journalists recently).

If you have the inclination, pick up a copy of "Breaking The News: How The Media Undermine American Democracy" for an interesting take on why American journalism has gone so wrong. Many of the ideas in the book can easily be applied to the tech journalism industry as well.

Thanks to Aleks Zawisza for the news.

It will not neccessarily *force* MS to comply to standards as proprietary Office-related functionality might be a sufficient reason for executives to choose IE.

Of course, this will result in lots of proprietary systems - elsewhere known as Intranets.

Standards are good, but they wont be enough to get rid of IE. Not everyone is a web developer.
