Mozilla's Future Uncertain

Wednesday June 30th, 1999

Benj, Ben Marklein, Geoff Elliott and J.R. have some distressing news. Apparently Sun is considering changes to Mozilla's licensing model, because in the words of Alan Baratz of Javasoft, "I'm not sure is working all that well."

Alan actually mentions the possibility of moving Mozilla to the Java community licensing model, as if it would be a better option. I think that they should seriously consider every other option first. And then reconsider them again.

UPDATE: Apparently AOL has nothing to do with the comments made by Javasoft's Alan Baratz. UPDATE (2):The article has been revised: "'We have heard no announcements internally or externally that there are changes in the works for,' said a Netscape spokesperson."
