GPL-style availability of NetScape 5.0 sourcecodes announced

Wow, I knew that would stir up the traffic!

I agree wholeheartedly that it is a good thing for them to do.
When the src is released, I plan to take a look at it and will
probably attempt a native port to Linux/Alpha so I can run it
on my Alpha without needing the DEC libraries.

I just find it funny in light of the recent announcement of their
financials and it sure makes good fodder for conversation.
