Google, Firefox offerings shame Microsoft

  • Chicago Tribune (subscription) (Posted by dave on Apr 10, 2005 6:46 AM EDT)
  • Story Type: News Story; Groups: Microsoft

Linuxcounter estimates page updated; LXer mentioned

Maybe you now the Linuxcounter from the good old days. Well, it's still up, at, and it's age is almost 12 years now. It contained an estimates page, which estimated the number of Linux users in the world. The page was made in 2001, and needed an update. So, I decided to do just that, and of course, make a reference to the LXer migration DB.

Radicati: Mozilla Thunderbird Not as Successful as Mozilla Firefox

roseman sent us a link to an InformationWeek article that says Mozilla Thunderbird is finding it hard to emulate the success of Mozilla Firefox. The report cites research from the Radicati Group, which says that Thunderbird is unlikely to make significant gains against rival software like Microsoft Outlook. Radicati rates the security of Thunderbird highly and believes its overall feature set compares well with competitors. However, the lack of integrated calendar functionality is named as a major weakness (the Lightning project intends to address this). The Radicati report also notes that Outlook has a wide range of third party add-ons available, which may discourage some users from switching.
