Entry Is Labelled


I've read both sides of the recent Debian v. Firefox brouhaha. I have to say, I side with Debian. Mozilla Corp. shouldn't be weilding such a heavy hand.

Debian wouldn't be where it is at today if it wasn't strict when it comes to free software and what "free" means.

I believe it is Mozilla's ego who needs a little deflating.

I'd like to hear someone like Blake Ross chime in with an opinion.

It's also increasingly ironic considering the problems Pheonix...errr...Firebird.. Firefox had when coming up with a name that didn't clash with trademarks.
