Big Mo in Trouble

So so, the open source community is abuzz that the Mozilla Foundation is considering dumping the Mozilla Suite in favor of Firefox. I thought that was the plan all along, but I guess I was mistaken.

I like using the Mozilla Suite for several reasons. I’m the kind of person that takes notes with the HTML composer, because it generates cross-platform, linkable, formattable documents, and plus the little button’s always been down there in the lower left-hand corner. The mail client is better than Thunderbird, and has worked well with IMAP servers since at least Netscape 4. The chat client always struck me as a waste of 8x16 pixels. The sidebars are cool.

That being said, I’ve not used it for months on Windows, and only sparingly on Mac or Linux. On Windows, Firefox is the go-to guy, because I rarely surf on Windows anyway and I’ll be damned if I’ll fire up that spyware-injector from Microsoft. On Mac and Linux, however, KHTML has got me convinced.

C’mon, KDE geeks, and get Konqueror and KMail ported over to Windows!
