Computerworld's Cusumano Takes Another Look at Mozilla

Monday November 1st, 1999

Mike Cusumano, writer of the Computerworld article that was much derided in our forum has taken a fresh look at Mozilla, and in his latest article at Computerworld has come to a different conclusion. I would like to thank him for having the fortitude to revisit Mozilla, and for posting his apology in his column.

That is all I have to say. I would have never even given Mozilla a second look if Internet Explorer could run on Linux.

As we move more and more of our clients are adapting linux we are starting to write software that needs to be platform independent.

This can only be achieved by companies non-biased to platform and open to peer review. I don't care for Microsoft, but that is not why I chose Mozilla.

In fact 80% of our customers will be using Mozilla on Windows. I think the people involved with Mozilla are fanatical because they is something to be excited about. (much like Linux fans)

How can you get fanatical over a software company that totally ignores you and treats you like an ATM machine. (Microsoft)

Sorry if this post is "fanatical", but I am pretty excited about what Mozilla has to offer.
