Firefox Grabs Enterprise Linux Title

Filed under
Moz/FF

The Mozilla Foundation's Firefox 1.5 blew away the competition to take the top award in the Enterprise Linux category in the Datamation Product of the Year 2006 awards.

The open-source browser easily beat out the second-place finisher, Red Hat Inc.'s Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.0, by garnering more than twice the votes. The Zimbra Collaboration Suite from Zimbra Inc. came in a distant third, with Asterisk 1.2 coming in fourth.

Firefox had a lot of industry buzz surrounding it early in 2005, according to Joe Wilcox, a senior analyst for JupiterResearch. That buzz was starting to fade, though, until Version 1.5 hit the market in the later part of the year.

''The release came just in time as some of the energy was dying around Firefox,'' says Wilcox. ''Firefox has built up a tremendous community. There's a lot of participation that goes on around the browser. It's an open-source product so there's contributions coming in from almost anywhere.''

And that community is part of what users love about Firefox, according to Mike Schroepfer, vice president of engineering at Mozilla Corp., based in Mountain View, Calif.

  • Ten Years of Vim
     

    The philosophy behind Vim takes a while to sink in: While other editors focus on writing as the central part of working with text, Vim thinks it's editing.

     

    You see, most of the time I don't spend writing new text; instead, I edit existing text.
