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.

"I'd never listen to a **BUSINESS** professor talk about such computer science things as open source."

Your view of open source is a very limited one, then. Open source is not just a method of getting a product developed, it's an entire business model. It's commonly accepted that Netscape is going to release their own branded version of Mozilla. Part of the interest from a business point of view is how they're going to make this fly.
