Full Article Attached Classic Mac OS Build Likely to be Retired and Removed from Tree

Thursday January 9th, 2003

We've previously reported that the Classic Mac OS build of Mozilla is transitioning to port status but now it looks like the build could be removed from the tree altogether. In a posting to netscape.public.mozilla.seamonkey, Asa Dotzler has announced that no maintainer for the Mac Classic port has been found. If nobody steps forward by next Wednesday, the Classic Mac OS build will be removed from CVS.

In related news, mozilla.org is also moving the Mac OS X nightly and milestone builds from FizzillaCFM to FizzillaMach. This change will reap several performance benefits and will also make the builds easier to maintain. It is hoped that this transition will be complete in time for the release of Mozilla 1.3.

If you must take out your mac insecurities please at least do so in an intelligent way. From a speed point of view, the mac menubar is great, and here's why:

(windows) Accelerate mouse toward menu item: Deaccelerate mouse as item approaches: Go very slowly to aviod overrunning: Click.

(mac) Fling mouse toward menu item: (mouse hits top of screen, above menu item). Click.

Much faster. I agree one button mice are a bad idea, along with trolling people who use different operating systems to you. Plaese stop it, or at least go to alt.i.hate.macs or wherever.
