"For as long as I have known Mike, he's been
maintaining one of the largest (and most widely used) package:
Iceweasel, Debian's default web browser. It's effectively Mozilla's
Firefox although it has been renamed to avoid some rules enforced
by Mozilla's trademark policy. But we might see Firefox back in
Debian… read on to know Mike's plans.
"His story is also very interesting in that he went from simple
user to Iceweasel maintainer, and now he's working for Mozilla
Corporation. But you already knew that contributing to free
software is a good way to grow skills and gain experience that are
valuable on the job market, right? ;-)"
