$2,000+ Offered to First Person to Port Mozilla to Amiga OS

Wednesday May 21st, 2003

Several people wrote in to tell us that DiscreetFX has started a fund for the first person to port Mozilla to Amiga OS. An initial contribution of $2,000 has been provided by DiscreetFX's CEO, Bill Panagouleas, and donations are welcome from other individuals and groups. To get the bounty, all a programmer/team has to do is get either the browser portion of the Mozilla Application Suite or Mozilla Firebird up and running on the Amiga, even in beta form. At the time of writing, the fund stands at $2,667.

Oh, BTW, I apologize if my first answer sounds a bit harsh. Let's not turn this site into ;)

However I was just pointing out the fact that OS4 is not mature enough to be in the same state as MOS (at the last show it was 68k modules on a 68k kernel). It doesn't mean it's less good, just that we'll have to wait a little more. But we're used to it :)

Everyone amigan should be open to both alternatives.

Hey, let's not scare the mozillazine readers ;)
