Salon Magazine on Andreesen's Departure and Mozilla

Wednesday September 15th, 1999

Salon Magazine's article "Goodbye, Internet poster boy" discusses Marc Andreesen's departure from AOL, and along the way the author decides to take some potshots at Mozilla.

His opinions seem culled entirely from articles in the mainstream press, including CNet's article on the "competition" between Robert Ginda's IRC client for Mozilla and AOL's Instant Messenger. Cut-and-paste journalism at its finest. Why search out your own truth when there are so many versions just a Ctrl-V away?

Thanks to Hervé Renault for the news.

One thing that annoys me about C|Net's coverage of Linux is that they almost always include the words "upstart OS" when mentioning Linux (do a search for "upstart" on C|Net...) !

Hey, never mind the fact that there's probably about 10 million users of it by now and it's been around for, what, 8 years or so ?
