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.

There was once a man named Berst, Who with M$ his opinions rehearsed, He's tried out some FUD, But we know it's just crud, And when the beta come out, he'll be praising it first.
Yes, a limerick .... to "honor" the man who we all know is more full of sh** than a bull with a sewn-up butt. I've seen this kind of crap from him before, and it doesn't impress me. Watch his columns when the beta comes out, he'll be the first to say "WOW what a great browser! I *knew* this would be a great product all the time!".
The best treatment for such as these is to ignore their puerile outbursts.....or spam their "talkback" boards with anti-Berst stuff, which is time-consuming but EVER so satisfying =)
-=Yusuf=-, handing Jesse the MS-Lackey-of-the-Year award.
PS Interesting he should mention that MS's legal troubles are just annoyances..... I wonder if he'll have the same opinion when it's split up....
