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.

Wrong. Mozilla should never go into developing online office suites, VOIP or Bitorrent. It should never deviate from its core product - web browsing. They would be treading water in unfamiliar territory, bloody suicide.

I will agree with you on hiring more fulltime staff, and they're doing that. Also with incentive prizes (Extend Firefox comp.)

What I think they should do, is invest in educational institutions. Securing a solid future in the development of open source applications (Firefox, Xen, etc).
