Clearing Up Mozilla's Status

Friday July 2nd, 1999

David Polberger has some good news from people who were dismayed by comments from Alan Baratz of Sun regarding Mozilla's future.

David writes, "... mozilla.org just posted this news item to its main page [click the link to read the full text of the comment]:

"...Our contributors and staff are responsible for the management of all browser development. As a major mozilla.org contributor, AOL completely supports our efforts... We would like to stress that Sun was not speaking for mozilla.org or for AOL."

This is good news. I got the impression that Alan B. was speaking for himself more than any official position. Anyway, I thought that Sun was only responsible for Netscape's server efforts, not their client efforts...

Little off the topic, but i think AOL should add more programers it pays..

If you think about it, it just makes sense.

The more programers you have the more money it costs to hire all of them. The more programers the faster the product comes to market and the sooner you make money from that product. In the end, you will still spend the same amount of money and make the same amount of revenue from the product? Doesn't this just make sense. I am ready for Netscape5.0 as much as the next person and the sooner it comes out the happier i will be.

I would love to see AOL say, "we are going to hire 100 more programers to speed up the development of Netscape5.0"

so if anyone who reads this works for AOL, tell Steve Case to hire more people!! =)
