	Actually, interesting that you chose those two examples -- Firefox is a
reversal of that theory, a moving away from the Mozilla Suite and
separating the browser.

	Linux follows the Unix Philosophy most definitely, where all the
different parts of the kernel can be modularized and are written mostly
separately. (Though it is a monolithic kernel, so it does give some
credit to your theory.)
