It looks like I'm missing something here so I'd like someone to explain to me how Mozilla Foundation, a company into which Google dumps nearly $100 million a year, gets to produce Firefox (for which the only reason for using is that it sometimes sucks less than the competition), a mostly (still!) unifinished Thunderbird 3, and a couple of academic excercise-style projects?
Seriously, a company in which Google dumps nearly $100 million a year produced *what*? Firefox 3.6, a recently resurrected (and still not finished) Thunderbird 3.x and a couple of side projects which are not much better than academic exercises?
From the Mozilla financial statement it looks like more than $40 million was spent on "Software development". WTF? Where are the results?
And if I'm reading it correctly, $115 million was "Purchases of investments" - again, WTF? Someone is playing Wall street broker in a supposedly charitable, open-source company?
More: Mozilla apparently holds $1.8 million in "Furniture and office equipment" ???
Am I missing something here? Is all that considered normal?
