In reply, Mike Beltzner, a "phenomenologist" for Mozilla and the company's spokesman on this issue, said: "Yes, we'd definitely be interested in getting some one-to-one support".
But Beltzner pointed out that Mozilla had already "been testing on Vista" with Firefox and Thunderbird "as well as working to ensure that we take advantage of the new 'Default Program' infrastructure".
Firefox has stolen a lot of thunder from Microsoft, and continues to do so. One can only wonder if this is part of a deeper Microsoft plan to become embedded in open source to somehow make a profit out of it. Whether they are or not, it is encouraging to see giant companies like MS being more open to integration with open source software.
