Boo-hoo for you. You wouldn't have any software to bitch about were it not for 1). Firefox, a generous gift to the open source community from AOL/Netscape, 2). Open Office, a generous gift from Sun, 3). generous contributions to the Linux kernel from IBM/Oracle/Intel/Oracle/SGI/Novell etc. etc. etc., 3). KDE and Gnome and financially supported by Novell/Suse, 4). Evolution, which would be a dinky mail client without, again, Novell.

The corporations that have helped make our free operating system what it is today ALL have a profit motive, and to single out Mozilla is hypocritical.

Stop bitching if you don't like it and go use Hurd/lynx/vim/pine. Hurray!! I've just reverted to the Stone Age, but I'm Free!!
