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, 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.

Apple made their mouse with one button from extensive testing that they performed. The short story is that their entire approach is to mimic how we interact with things in the real world. When you point at something, you point with one finger only, you don't point at a bridge with your index finger to say to something "The bridge I'm asking about is that one" and then point with another finger at the bridge to say "I need driving directions to that". Novice users find it confusing figuring out (or remembering) what button is used for what when there are two buttons. That is why you see so many instructions out there that say "then click with the left mouse button".
