  Mozilla Suite is dead
Time: 11:15 EST/16:15 GMT | News Source: ZDNet UK | Posted By: Brian Kvalheim

When ZDNet Australia wrote yesterday afternoon about the fact that open source developers were debating the end of the Mozilla Suite (code-named 'Seamonkey'), a final verdict has not been reached. Now one has. The Mozilla Foundation announced today that "The [current] 1.7.x line will be the last set of Seamonkey products released and maintained by the Mozilla Foundation." The foundation cited the amount of work involved in maintaining both the stand-alone Web and e-mail applications Firefox and Thunderbird, as well as an integrated suite as at least one powerful reason not to continue official development of the suite. "We've committed to support the 1.7 branch some time ago," said the foundation. "If we ship 1.8 we'll need to support that as well, and we just can't manage that many versions as well as Firefox and Thunderbird releases."

I'm startin' to see a pattern here. The "I told ya so" feels so good right now.

The beginning of the end for both Mozilla and Firefox. Typical opensource development with no adult leadership and quarreling factions that ultimately destroy everything they try to create.
All the experienced developers at Mozilla dont like firefox and are jealous of its limited success. While Firefox does not have any real developers but borrow the code from Mozilla and dumb it down for their stupid users.

LOL they've said they would phase out the suite in 2003.. Why is this a surprise to anyone? "I told you so" What the? What are you talking about?

I think the primary problem was that there never has been any consumer demand for a "suite".

Well, there is some demand for a suite. Despite the availability of Firefox, Thunderbird, and other standalone components of Mozilla, a few percent have chosen to stick with Mozilla (just as a few percent have chosen to stick with Netscape), and these few percent are a large fraction of those who use Gecko-based browsers.

Mozilla proponents says that (a) a suite is easier to upgrade, since there is only once thing to upgrade, (b) a suite is better integrated, (c) Mozilla has features which Firefox lacks because Firefox was designed for less technical users, and (d) Mozilla is available on more platforms.

There is some indication that volunteers may join together to make a suite similar to Mozilla.

"There is some indication that volunteers may join together to make a suite similar to Mozilla."

With all the name changes, terminated projects and the like from OSS, how on earth will the consumer understand what is happening? Where is the consistency. This is one way to lose your customers. MS has done the same.

They have always said the integrated product would eventually go away.

I do find the timing, what with the recent brain-drain at Mozilla.org, to be interesting...

"Sometimes, you just have to force people to spend money for their own good.."

Sure. Like they did when they told everyone XP was the most Secure OS available.
