Mozilla & Gecko clones eWEEK Labs' tests show that Beta 1 of the open-source Firefox 2.0 includes some welcome new features, catches up a bit with capabilities found in other Web browsers and adds some nice security enhancements. However, while Firefox 2.0 is shaping up to be a good upgrade to Version 1.5 of the popular Web browser, it doesn't look like it will be the slam-dunk over the forthcoming Internet Explorer 7 that Firefox 1.5 has been to the current IE 6.x. For that matter, unless Firefox 2.0 and IE 7 improve greatly before their respective releases later in 2006, neither will come close to topping the quality of the already shipping Opera 9.

"LOL I do hope thats a quote about how Linus got shafted over a propriatry piece of software, and had to create git in a day. "

IIRC, that quote is from the BitKeeper controversey.

It was. Linus was so busy judging BK on technical merits, he completely lost sight of the fact that it was a hopeless fit for his development team as a whole. All's well that ends well, I guess.
