Die komplette Durchkommerzialisierung von OpenSource-Projekten ist selten gut…

Mozilla Foundation going commercial… if you sell your soul and your culture… there is soon nothing to be left to sell.

„In 2005, the Mozilla Foundation and Mozilla Corporation had a combined revenue of US$52.9 million, with approximately 95% derived from search engine royalties.[24][25] “ „Google agreed to pay Mozilla just under a billion dollars over three years in exchange for the browser to leave Google as its default search engine. “


„The Mozilla Foundation is a non-profit organization that exists to support and lead the open source Mozilla project.“
