Boot To Gecko – Mozilla's Web-Based OS

IB4Student Re:I have an idea. (120 comments)

Not everyone in Mozilla is good at desktop application programming. Don't worry, the same people are still working on Javascript and Gecko. There's just a lot of new kids that only know Java, and they got their new-fangled smartphones and want to try to contribute in that way.

Google Music Adds Linux, Ogg Vorbis Support

IB4Student Re:Cloud? (111 comments)

You have issues with the Internet knowing what music you have? Lots of people spend the time to add their favorite musicians or tracks to Facebook, Last.fm, P2P, etc.

Simply changing the version number is also reasonable, and much more simple.

Linux 3.0 Release Delayed

IB4Student Re:Chicken? (187 comments)

Are you suggesting that the consumers should have to wait until, say, 10 total new features are complete before they can use the 4 new features that are already finished?

Firefox 5 Scheduled For June 21 Release

IB4Student Re:High version numbers (266 comments)

No, Chrome is going to run into the hurdle first, and after they fix it via a name or numbering scheme change, Fx will surely just follow suite ;)

IB4Student Re:High version numbers (266 comments)

Yes, after 30 years, they are still going to be called Firefox and using the same numbering scheme.

Firefox 5 Scheduled For June 21 Release

IB4Student Re:What?! (266 comments)

They do not have any of the features of Fx 5 implemented in them, yet. Right now they are mostly just bugfixes and improvements that are going to be released in a few weeks with the minor Fx 4 update. And 4.1 is taken by mobile. And minefield build numbering is automated so you probably should not base anything off of them (e.g. Fx 4 RC was always labeled beta 13pre in the nightlies).
