"we will ship mozilla-release to the desktop beta channel before the weekend to make sure nothing screwed up (should be no content changes but it would be silly not to test what we will ship!)"
"We will ship the build off mozilla-release to the release channel on 2011-08-16 if no issues are found"
I love rapid releases, but why do they have to kill support for the previous version so quickly? It's somewhat ironic when Firefox 3.6 is still being supported. It seems they're pushing things a little too hard.
And looking at the changelog, it's definitely much more than a "secuirty update". Perhaps they should inform users of changes like this from early on...
In the US, most customers are bound to contracts with their carriers and that's what failed it (just like how other unlocked phones never sell well in the US market).
If only they've pushed it out worldwide through retail stores... It was only available in few select markets, and many would like to have a feel of the phone they're buying.
I will never click on any ads, so I block them all. Anyway I think this new "feature" will not be intrusive in itself. It just shows a "yellow bar" at the top. The tag doesn't seem to break any standards. If unblocking the ads can bring money to the sites I find this a friendly reminder for users to support their favourite sites.
"If the feedback and telemetry on Windows 7 match our expectations then we will enter the final phases of the RTM process in about 3 months. If we are successful in that, then we tracking to our shared goal of having PCs with Windows 7 available this Holiday season."
Obviously it will NOT be released in August.
Ubuntu still has a long way to go to catch up to Windows 7, especially when you consider things like user-friendliness. There are significant design oversights, for example you have to get into the terminal to perform simple tasks like changing a volume label. How does that sound?
Testing is good and Ubuntu has too little of that. I thought I would have a better experience with Ubuntu after a year...
