You're going to turn the [mailing] list into a three-day ignorance swap meet on tax policy. I think I'll head out of town for the weekend.

Well, this has been reported elsewhere, BUT, it's worth noting that the people at mozilla.org have come out and said that Mozilla will continue as an Open Source project no matter what happens with Netscape and AOL. They interpret the Netscape Public License (NPL) to mean that the AOL-driven Netscape zombie will not be able to do evil things like re-privatize the code for Mozilla. This sounds cool, but I'm still holding out reservations that the Biggest Ever Commercial Product To Go Open Source will not be saddled with evil restrictions by bad AOL people. See Jamie Zawinski's rant for details.

Over.  End of Story.  Go home now.
