Is Mozilla actually AOL-Netscape's Mozilla?
Author: JT Smith
MozillaQuest's Mike Angelo unravels the Mozilla-Netscape relationship. MozillaQuest Magazine (MozillaQuest.com) reports: "Just what is the relationship between Netscape (NSCP) and Mozilla? Is Mozilla truly independent of AOL and its Netscape division? Or, do AOL and its Netscape division run Mozilla? There is little doubt that there is a relationship between Netscape and Mozilla. However, the Mozilla and Netscape people claim they are not the same and that Mozilla is not Netscape. The 235 AOL-Netscape employees working on Mozilla stuff have put 940 person-years into the Mozilla effort at only $50,000 per person-year, that Mozilla investment is $47-million -- and still no Mozilla 1.0 as it stands now it appears that Mozilla is not really all that independent of AOL and its Netscape division. Check this MozillaQuest.com story for the details and full story!."
