"Linux, Apache, and FreeBSD are often cited as examples of successful examples of free software projects. Mozilla is not, but I think its reputation as a failure is undeserved. With today's departure of Mozilla's "International Incident" (yes, that is his official title), Mike Shaver, from AOL, we may soon be hearing once again that Mozilla is doomed."

At that point, a small but growing number of people in the free software community were starting to question Mozilla's "success", perhaps prematurely.
