Mozilla & Gecko clones This week the Mozilla Foundation released Firefox 2.0, and that occasion did not go by unnoticed at Microsoft's Internet Explorer team. "The Microsoft Internet Explorer Team sent us a cake for the upcoming release of Firefox 2! A big thanks to Redmond, Washington!" What's next, Stallman on a dinner date with Ballmer?

And Microsoft is also grateful for real competition. Without competition, everyone would be screaming "monopoly!" even louder still - and the DOJ and EU would be pounding on them even worse.

It is healthy business to have competition, and Microsoft has learned this ;)

I'm sure there are still those conspiracy theorists out there, however, that can't for the life of them figure out why Microsoft would welcome their competition.
