Mozilla exec claims Apple is hunting open source

Rob (703254) writes "Apple chief Steve Jobs expects to do more than lure Internet Explorer users to Apple's forthcoming version of Safari for Windows — he envisions a duopoly within the browser market at the expense of FireFox and others, according to Mozilla COO John Lilly. Lilly pointed to a pie graph representing the browser market that Jobs showed at last week's Apple developers' conference. The graph was made up with just two browsers: Safari and Internet Explorer. The graph "betrays the way that Apple, so often looks at the world," Lilly said. "But make no mistake: this wasn't a careless presentation, or an accidental omission of all the other browsers out there, or even a crummy marketing trick," he said. "Lots of words describe Steve and his Stevenotes, but 'careless' and 'accidental' do not. This is, essentially, the way they're thinking about the problem, and shows the users they want to pick up.""
