> you're off-base talking about Firebird this way. You didn't know about it before, but I did.
Well... wasn't that integral to the point I was making? You and a few other people were focused upon Firebird. The rest of us weren't. I think I was aware of it, peripherally, back before. But after the fracas... everyone paying any attention in this neck of the woods knew what Firebird was, whether we respected their actions or not. And whether we respected Mozilla Corp's actions or not.
Personally, I think that RDBMS's are RDBMS's and browsers are browsers. and that the whole thing could have been worked out politely. But that, apparently, did not suit either party's self-interest. I think less of both parties for it all.
