Bill Joy of Sun Spreads Little Joy

Wishiknew writes, "In a 1 1/2 hour lecture to a University of Washington's computer science class, Chief Scientist Bill Joy of Sun Microsystems Inc. criticized Netscape Communications 'Mozilla' effort for it's inability to 'take off', despite being an open source project."

And he managed to plug Jini and Java quite a bit as well, I see. I wish there was a transcript or audio file of the event.

I have a question for you: What happens when Win2000 and Office2000 are released?

We both know that millions upon millions of people are vested in Windows... so what then? What reason would one have to use a different browser technology other than the one already integrated into their two most heavily used software products (Windows & Office)?

I would really like to hear the other side of the coin on this issue because I want more than anyhting for Mozilla to be a complete and total success.
