"Hey, what's up with Mozilla? Is it dead? Dying? About to be spirited away from the open source movement so that Sun can "take control" of it? Or is it simply weathering some bad times and preparing to reemerge onto the stage as another free/open source success story? Joe Barr muses on these and other Mozilla-related questions in this week's Version Control."

"Whether or not Mozilla is a failure, or whether or not it is an accurate bellwether for similar hybrid efforts in the free/open software revolution (since it is half commercial and half volunteer) is left for the future to tell us. At this point, all I can say with certainty is that it remains a controversial topic."
