Anyone have any comments, memories, or anything else to share in relation to the Mozilla Suite, which is now dead?

The official response is:

http://www.mozilla.org/seamonkey-transition.html

The Mozilla suite will not reach 8.0, but the last published version will continue to be supported with security updates, etc.

I am rather unhappy by the choice to discontinue development of the suite, which I like because of how the two are integrated, but I can understand that the Mozilla folks are spread thin if they have to work on three separate applications at the same time. Hopefully, FF and TB will evolve more quickly now.
Regards,
John

......... I can understand that the Mozilla folks are spread thin if they have to work on three separate applications at the same time. ......

I think it was in Business Week that I read, Mozilla.org has 16 employees, and a 2 million dollar budget.

I didn't look for the post but way back last spring/summer before FF became really popular, it mentioned in one of the FF faq's that FF was eventually going to become the replacement for the Mozilla browser. If that is their plan then nothing being done today seems to go against that and this would just be a stepping stone to that end. If the plan is to replace Mozilla with Firefox then they probably will ultimately create a new suite based around Firefox and Thunderbird at some time.

I wouldn't be concerned about what they are doing.

You memory is correct, Ronbo, although at the time, the question about the ultimate fate of the Suite was left somewhat open in the statement. I plan to use the last version of Seamonkey until the development of FF and TB progresses.
Cheers,
John
