Mostly true, but at least this piece wasn't that bad. Joe's last piece, if I remember correctly, was how Netscape should stop working on Mozilla and leave it to independent developers to finish.
He's obviously someone who doesn't bother to research his stories well, it doesn't take too much to find out what "Wallet" refers to.
Furthermore, he doesn't seem to get how long it takes to build a web browser of this size - something you can say about most journalists who've been dissing Mozilla of late, yet have no idea about programming. He probably wouldn't be hired to write for LinuxWorld if he didn't know anything about Linux, so why should he write about Mozilla without actually researching things first?
