Ubuntu, Firefox and License Issues

,----[ Quote ]
| The most important thing here is to acknowledge that yes, the content of the
| license agreement is wrong. The correct content is clear that the code is
| governed by FLOSS licenses, not the typical end user license agreement
| language that is in the current version. We created a license that points to
| the FLOSS licenses, but we’ve made a giant error in not getting this to
| Ubuntu, other distributors, and posted publicly for review. We’ll correct
| this asap.

| Thanks for clearing up the issue of the EULA’s content, Mitchell.
| Unfortunately, from what I’ve read over the last couple of days, I can’t find
| any serious concerns expressed about the _content_ of the EULA.
| Pretty much all of what’s being discussed publicly has been about the very
| existence of a EULA.
| “EULAs don’t belong in Free Software” seems to be the basic sentiment.
| I don’t know how one argues against that sentiment given that every major
| Linux distro I’ve installed had a EULA and yet that seems unproblematic to
| most of the people making the demands that Mozilla not have one.

Firefox 3.0 Beta 2 Is A Win For Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Mozilla has released the latest beta of Firefox 3 today, and the Linux
| efforts behind it are starting to show even more. This release, being a beta,
| is surprisingly stable. Here’s the killer that makes this beta release
| amazing: true GTK support. *


Personas from Mozilla Labs give Firefox a sleek coat

,----[ Quote ]
| I probably won't use Personas much myself since I greatly prefer the
| unadulterated GTK look in Firefox 3, but the addon is very intriguing from a
| technical standpoint. The way that Personas takes Firefox's Internet
| capabilities and leverages theme to bring dynamic content to the Firefox *
| chrome layer is very creative and it reflects a lot of possibilities that I
| had never previously considered. * *


Update on the Firefox 3 Linux Theme

| Work on the new linux theme for Firefox 3 is progressing nicely due to a very
| active group of contributers. To match the operating system’s theme,
| Firefox’s navigation toolbar will use native GTK icons. *
