  • InfoWorld: [Open Source is] Already a contender (2001-10-31 21:05:32)
    "Although it is true that much of the history of open-source development has been marked by the effort to create features found in other platforms, this has far more to do with the time line than the Linux community's ability to innovate. As with any new venture launched into a field with many established competitors, Linux needed to first reach the baseline established by the competition before focusing entirely on innovation."

  • MozillaNews: Netscape 6.2 First Thoughts (2001-10-31 08:56:47)
    "...This is the first version of Netscape since 4.7x that I would recommend to a friend. Prior to this version, I would usually recommend either the currently Mozilla milestone build or a Mozilla Nightly build. I think Netscape 6.x has finally arrived at a commercial quality state. If the quality and features keep progressing at the current speed, and that is likely considering the advancments already in the Mozilla nightlies, then Netscape has a good chance of regaining market share from IE."
