Mozilla to Provide Many of LindowsOS 4.0's Advantages

Wednesday May 21st, 2003

Albert and Adam Hauner wrote in to tell us that the forthcoming LindowsOS 4.0 will ship with a customised version of Mozilla. In fact, many of the advantages that Lindows.com is touting over Windows XP — including spam filtering, tabbed Web browsing and popup blocking — are actually Mozilla features. Previously, LindowsOS shipped with a customised version of Netscape 7.0 (Lindows.com's initial announcement of that decision got their over-excited PR department in trouble with AOL) but they announced a switch a few weeks ago.

"LindowsOS is the first operating system to ship with the default instant messenger program that connects to them all! Plus we add tabbed IM windows, integrated chat, IM logging, name aliases, and in-line spell checking."

Read that carefully. The "instant messenger program" they speak of is GAIM. Doesn't it sound like they are claiming credit for creating GAIM? And they are far from the first distro to ship with GAIM. As usual, Lindows distributes only lies.
