So essentially they are saying "We fought every solar incentive tooth and nail, and now that's it's winning we want a bigger cut". Screw 'em. They bet on the wrong horse (and did their very best to kill off any other horse in the race) and now they see that they will be out of the money at the end of the race. Too bad, so sad.

Seems to be the way things work with the Mozilla crew. Look at the "progress" of the Thunderbird project. For over a decade people have been complaining about its inability to accurately render html, yet that problem still exists in the software today. No one wants to work on the un-sexy nuts and bolts stuff; everybody wants to be the guy who wrote the flashy new UI. Kinda difficult to do anything about it when you can't fire someone and hire a decent replacement.

It's the State of Comcast. They have no such niceties as "innocent until proven guilty". They can do whatever they want, because they own everybody who could possibly be effective in trying to do something about them. So let's let them swallow Time-Warner, too! All hail Comcast!
