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 love it when power users assume that everyone has their level of expertise with computers. I train people for a living... and let me tell you... there are plenty of novice users out there. There are even people that have used computers for years... and they still don't understand right mouse buttons.

By default... anyone reading a post here is a power user... and possibly even a developer. The vast majority of computer users can barely surf the internet.

Besides... it's not as if the Mac OS doesn't have extra button functionality. You can get extra button mice, if you want... but out of the box, the mac is designed for the way regular people think... not the way a programmer thinks.
