Well about time :)

I ran OS/2 for years. Nice to see that IBM is helping with the Mozilla port. After all, there E-Business plans for OS/2 and everything else they sell are on the line, so why not support the standard web browser.

Go big blue go. I would love to get back into OS/2 as soon as the Scitech Display drivers are complete, mozilla is stable and JDK 1.2 is out. (Need JDK for Oracle Apps, need scitech for my voodoo 3500 and need mozilla for web browsing.. the 4.x browser is deadly to anyones health under os/2)

#2 MozillaTest??

Cool, the more platforms the better.

Why is the link on <http://tinderbox.mozilla.org/showbuilds.cgi> for OS/2 tinderbox call MozillaTest and not OS2 or something?

Also is this Tinderbox located at Netscape, IBM, or somewhere else?

MozillaTest is the staging area for tinderboxes.

We are still trying to get the trees green before we move them to the ports page.

As far as the location of the machines, they are at IBM in Austin, TX.

Speaking of tinderbox, does anyone have a link to the Bezilla tinderbox?

APC Magazine in Australia has OS/2 Warp on a cover CD this month, must look in to that - $A8.90+GST isn't a bad price to pay if it's for real :)

(I suppose this is a shameless plug, but still.......)
