Microsoft should not buy Mozilla. That's nuts. If we live in a world where it is inevitable that big tech companies buy independent open-source projects, then we are living in an unhealthy system. (which we are, but still)

We desperately need an independent, progressive, publicly funded, ethics-driven tech/software professional organization, and, for all its faults, Mozilla is the biggest/closest thing to that. And big tech definitely wants and acts to destroy it.

@wilkie personally I'd like to see Firefox eventually fall under the auspices of the GNOME Foundation.

It would be a good fit, and that organization is a) not-for-profit and b) democratically-run.
