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.

Macintoshes seriously can't suck that bad if they haven't died off yet...And I like my macintosh. I also use the keyboard a LOT and people don't realize that when you know how to use the system, Its not as "suckie" as they had thought. I also want to point out that people don't understand how revolutionary Mac OS X was as compaired to Win XP. I believe while XP was mostly cosmetic, Mac users had gotten some features long missing lite a new memory system to protect the OS from other programs crashing among a whole command line interface that was never there before. If you don't like it you don't. If you do you do. Competition is good....even if the Mac market is that small.
