"During the LinuxWorld Expo in New York, I sat down with David Boswell and Pete Collins, two key players in the Mozdev.org group, a developer's group closely related to, but not the same as, the Mozilla Project."

"For those of you who were not with us a few years ago, the Mozilla Project is the open source organization that sprang into being after Netscape Communications made its announcement that it was releasing the source code for its Netscape Communicator 5 application in 1997. This collection of code is referred to as Mozilla, and the open source community that manages it is the Mozilla Project."

"Mozdev.org is a separate open-source project, but it is tightly integrated with the original Mozilla Project. While the Mozilla Project focuses on changes and improvements to the base Mozilla code itself, Mozdev.org creates a collaborative development envirnoment for applications that can be developed from the Mozilla code."

"And if you think that browsers are all that's coming out of Mozilla, you're in for a surprise."
