Guess the Mozilla market isn't big enough. I talked with a developer
about this once, and he said that they develop and test using Windows and
IE. So it wasn't so much a matter of not supporting other browsers - they
just didn't have any around. But...if you embraced the IBM Linux message
and direction, you would be SOL when it comes to things like Webfacing. I
don't think Microsoft has built a version of IE for Linux yet. :)
