The headline on SpreadFirefox.com today is “‘10,000 Firefox enthusiasts make history’,”:http://www.spreadfirefox.com/?q=node/view/8769 and quite rightly. This surely is the biggest gesture to date from the Open Source world. The story has been told so many times and I will not repeat it here. The full-spread ad looks like this
and my name appears on the crossbar of the letter ‘f’ in ‘Firefox’, down the middle of the left page.
It’s a little ironic that, the first and second time in my life I actually pay for software (I know, shame on me), it is open source.
