Mozilla team: We have always wanted an independent organization…

Brendan Eich, mozilla.org: “We have always wanted an independent organization for Mozilla, and those of us who’ve been on staff@mozilla.org have conducted Mozilla business
according to what we judged was good for Mozilla, not what was good for
any one corporate contributor. It has not always been easy to wear two
hats; conflicts have come and gone, but we’re better off for our
experience running the project as an open source meritocracy. There was
never any other way to go.
Now that the Mozilla Foundation has been launched, we believe the time
is ripe to move aggressively toward new distribution channels, new
end-user markets, and better incorporation of developer-driven
innovations from the whole Mozilla community.”
