Compuserve 7 Ships with Gecko

Tuesday April 16th, 2002

Both c|net and Slashdot are reporting that Compuserve 7 has shipped, and AOL used Gecko, rather than Trident (IE), to power the layout of content. Compuserve's content is completely web-based, so AOL using Gecko as the layout engine shows their confidence in it. Check out the c|net story or if you have Compuserve, grab 7.0.

"Many software programs with the most powerful features have difficult UI's that most people don't have time to figure out (e.g. Unix)."

Huh? I'm posting this from a *nix machine with a beautiful and very easily to use UI. (My mom writes her letters with more ease on this machine than on the windows box). *nix UI's aren't more difficult than Win/Mac UI's. And if you are speaking about the console, well that's definitly easier to use and better documented than the Windows registry...
