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.

Could you please step out of the f*@#&!g hypothetical for a minute and give me an example where "netscape influence on mozilla" failed to support the interests of this "wider community", or where some contribution was discarded because "decisions are made by a corporate entity". Your theory is fine and f*@#&!g dandy except for the simple fact that no one has been harmed. And without some demonstrable harm I see little in your words but FUD.
