MS buys out firefox?
Christ, what is this world coming to. Microsoft has given the developers of firefox an offer of 1.5 million in exchange for a closed-fork of firefox. The GNU Mozilla foundation can keep their current fork, but have to release one version under the BSD license specifically for Microsoft. This means of course that Microsoft can fork or even merge IE and Firefox under a closed source application.
Wow, and I used to be a huge supporter of MS until now. What a cheap ass move And since the foundation has not accepted the offer yet, is there anyway we could start a petition to show our support AGAINST this buisness move? Link to the story below:
Oh, and april fools.
