Daniel Hill writes, "Another negative Mozilla/Netscape article, [this one] from TIME, [which] looks as if it has been taken straight from CNet's News.com article. It also takes shots at Open Source software, with lines like 'mozilla.org, Netscape's pioneering experiment with open source software ... which has yet to prove a substitute for on-staff programming talent.'

The mozilla.org developers are not involved with instant messaging the only Mozilla involvement with IM is the THIRD PARTY jabber work and the THIRD PARTY IRC client.

If AOL are integrating AIM with Mozilla then they've employed some coders to add this feature that are not part of Mozilla.org. If you follow the progress on Mozilla.org you'll know that they have no part of IM that's all to third party addons or AOL to integrate themselves.

Don't believe the press most of the time.
