"Just want to let you know that I was at a talk last night in Trinity College, Dublin with Eric Raymond, whom we know and love as a champion of open source.
It was billed as: 'Freedom, Power and Software: What the Internet teaches us about ethics and politics'
Anyway, at one point someone from the audience brought up Mozilla and its 'failure' to try to disprove one of his points. But Eric was having none if it, proclaiming Mozilla to be 'a success', despite the delays. I won't say anymore in case I misquote him! But that was the bottom line.
It was a great talk; certainly gets you thinking."

Here's one key difference between Mozilla's delays and W2k's delays: Microsoft keeps slashing W2k features, yet the release date continutes to slip. Mozilla's release was delayed BECAUSE of the wealth of features they decided to implement.
