This paper has already had real-world consequences. The day of the
announcement I was informed by the folks at Netscape that it was a
major influence on their decision to _give away the source for
Netscape Communicator_. Eric Hahn, Executive Vice President and
Chief Technology Officer at Netscape, wrote me four days afterwards
confirming: "On behalf of everyone at Netscape, I want to thank you
for helping us get to this point in the first place. Your thinking
and writings were fundamental inspirations to our decision."
