$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.

It's not really a problem. Let's first make an amiga OS3.X version. It'll be very easy to then build a MorphOS PPC version (MOS is already available). When OS4 is ready, it'll be easy to build it for it too. It'll work automatically under amithlon (very fast JIT emulation). Under AROS, I don't know ?

But anyway, all those OS are source compatible with amigaOS 3.x.
