Mozilla Foundation announced yesterday that Mozilla Corporation has been created in order to simplify cashflow into the various Mozilla projects from other corporations. (MozillaZine has an article which explains the reorganization in an understandable way.) This sounds like good news to me. If the Mozilla Foundation has been earning cash at a rate which was problematic to it as a non-profit organization, that can’t not be a good thing.
Hopefully, corporate interest in the Mozilla products will increase even further. Also, I hope we’ll see Firefox and Thunderbird bundled with new computers from one (or more) of the major PC manufacturers in the not so distant future. Maybe this move from the Mozilla Foundation was in order to allow or simplify such a deal? Who knows.
