This is the first time I have ever used a wiki so it is turning out to be an interesting experience. Building FireFox was a very interesting experience. The time it took for me to figure out the instructions was around with 4 hours with help from Sherman and Elizabeth's page. The build itself took 51 minutes.

My Experience With OpenSource

This is the first time I became involved with Open Source. I truly found it a rewarding experience because it has exposed me to a world that I never knew existed. This course has triggered my curiosity to experiment with open source alternatives to popular software such as I am grateful for the opportunity to have participated.


I like to thank everyone who has contributed on XULRunner and enriched my experience with Open Source. Especially Benjamin Smedberg for all his help.
