Bill Joy of Sun Spreads Little Joy

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.

Well, mozilla is complex and there are not 10000000 of outside developers but who cares, if the current developers keep up and finally release a working browser we have won, and I can't see anything that would stop it, I don't think AOL would pull the developers or microsoft take over the universe before mozilla can get finished.

The real threats come after mozilla gets released, Then we can get lots of hostile code forks and splittering. But hey, its you're lisence not mine.
