Mozilla & Gecko clones The Mozilla Foundation has said it is committed to rewarding the community that helps develop its software. Mozilla's suite, which includes the Firefox Web browser, is partly developed by unpaid programmers, often working in their spare time. Mozilla on Wednesday said it could not afford to pay all of its voluntary contributors, but instead may contribute by providing hardware to some developers.

But is this a preemptive move on their part to co-opt Microsoft's recent efforts to reward folks for writing code for its platform? (see recent article on WinCE contest). Why would they feel the need to do this, if people are really engaged in their code base? Are people starting to lose interest? How long do they expect to sustain interest in their project?
