11 Dec, 2003

MozillaZine and Ben Goodger reported that AOL laid off a few hundred people in California (Mountain View, San Francisco, San Diego) on Tuesday. Some of them were former Netscape engineers who had been reassigned to work elsewhere within AOL.

July this year, AOL dismissed Netscape developing department, and pulled the help to Mozilla Organisation.

Well, what a sad news.

Well, what else could you expect from a company like MSN and AOL ?
Not much, you will probably all do better in the long run elsewhere.
Mozilla is getting pretty good press.
Linux seems to be moving in a little stronger, so perhaps you would be better to work with them.
Not that I know anything about Linux, just what I've read and half the time I don't understand what they are talking about. But it seems to me if MSIE is taking Linux to court over Lindows because it sounds too much like Windows... hmmn, I would be very happy to be a Linux or Mozilla employee.
Imagine the nerve Mr. Gates has, complaining about Lindows and then using the name, I might have this wrong, Mythica when there is already a programme calle Mythic?
"Don't throw stones Mr. Gates, not when you live in glass houses."
