the Mozilla Foundation [MoFo] started pushing the separate e-mail and web browsers, instead of the integrated suite, and a whole marketing operation was created around MoFo's now separate components (Firefox and Thunderbird) targeting the end-user audience.

That seems not to be the case anymore, if one reads MoFo's Ben Goodger's blog.

This article will show you how to set up NFS to run over a CIPE-VPN connection between two Linux systems.

"Unlike the originators of other successful open source projects, I have not been able to attract a core of people who believe in Shorewall and who are willing to make sacrifices to ensure it's success.
