See... I read the title and wondered where the other two bullet points were.

> we’re better off trying to get to enterprises via users

I think so. However, this case doesn't support that. In this case they were "engineers". Users are rarely engineers, and engineers are not the target for most software. We need to please those decision-makers while not forcing their favourite features on the regular users.

Firefox extensions do this pretty well. But I'd rather find a way to make the non-engineers want us too, or even know about us.

(I can only barely forgive myself for that title. I hope you can manage as well.)

I commend you for your humor, particularly as it's the sort that makes people cringe in pain; those are the best kind of jokes by far. :-)

More on Infocard

Joshua Porter suggested I listen to the Identity Gang II show. I'm glad he did, great listening:

Why Ads?

Shaver suggested I add some ads to my site to help pay off my car and/or pay for my car insurance. Seemed like a good idea to me, so I've added some small Google Adsense. If anyone finds them obtrusive...

I don't understand how someone can read my post and then turn around and write that my first priority is to "make Firefox work right on an Enterprise". Isn't it patently obvious that my first priority is not that? If I cared more about enterprise deployment I might want to ask how you know it would be "really easy to sell Firefox" once we, uh, deploy it for them? -- but I don't, so I'll just stick to boggling. Are you trying to give me my priorities, Caleb? I don't get it.

Tristan: I said "help them sell it" and not "sell it for them" for a reason. And I don't really understand what "enterprise deployment" means, in that it would seem to vary a lot per enterprise. Certainly every enterprise I've worked in has done desktop software deployment differently (if at all). If you were to get les gendarmes to write up their experiences deploying Firefox, though, then that would be an interesting thing to point people at to get started. I bet we could even find people to translate it.

Paul: I'm pretty sure that that character is properly encoded as UTF-8, which is the character set of my feed. Feedhouse seems to be presenting its content as Latin-1, without actually converting to make sure it's the case. I think you need to report that issue to them.

mozillaZine feedHouse mangles your blog by changing single quotes to multiple characters as in "Microsoft’s".

I totally agree. but there is a missing item:

  1. Remove the roadblocks that prevent enterprises to easily deploy your product in their environment. Write documentation for enterprise deployment, fix obvious blockers (MSI builds).

Your first priority is to make Firefox work right on an Enterprise.......

I'm mostly talking about corporate deployment. Once you've achieved that, it'll be really easy to sell Firefox to enterprises.
