Re:The reasons of Debian's unhappiness

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on October 12, 2006 07:25 AM
Now that you mentioned Ubuntu, I think Mozilla's new trademark policy affects also them -- at least the "Long Term Support" releases like Dapper Drake.

Dapper will support Firefox 1.5 many years after Mozilla has dropped the official support for it. And waiting for Mozilla people's approval will make fixing Firefox's security problems in Dapper slower and more difficult. So also Ubuntu has a good reason to be unhappy with Mozilla.

It'll be interesting to see what Ubuntu's reaction will be.
