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.

I assume those tests were done 15-20 years ago with people who had never used a computer before, let alone a GUI. Now everyone (well almost) has been using GUIs for 10 years. I suspect those users "know" that click is left click and extra mouse buttons aren't very confusing.

I think I would find rememembering Option-Click and Apple-Click more confusing, but I haven't really used a Mac in 10 years.

I, for one, can't figure out how PC users get by with just two buttons. The whole select and middle-button paste with X windows is one of the most convenient things ever.

To each their own, I guess.
