More Mozilla FUD - This Time From An MIT Professor

Monday October 18th, 1999

Mike Cusumano, co-author of "Competing on Internet Time: Lessons from Netscape and Its Battle with Microsoft" and professor at MIT's Sloan School of Business Management has an article at Computerworld titled "Mozilla gambit reveals risks of open sourcing". Just another in a long stream of Mozilla articles written by someone who doesn't seem to be too terribly interested in verifying his assumptions.

Thanks to Luddite for the news.

#10 That shows Mozilla *is* a threat.

Okay,let's suppose that Mozilla is a failure like these guys say,then why is every Big-Company-Sponsored-or-bandwagon-rider-market-expert-wannabe bashing it instead of just ignoring it like something that has been? because in fact,it *is* important.And thank God for that. The real importance of Mozilla is not,IMHO in the PC browser market,it's far more,as the Nokia deals show,the real future is embedded systems-cell phones,palm computers and the like,and in special purpose hardware like kiosks.It has all someone in this field desires: Modular,Small,Cross Platform and Open Source,i.e anyone who has enough experience can hack it into his hardware. p.s: And a cool desktop browser too :-) -Mohamed
