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.

With ClearType on in XP, it looks better than the example you posted. Personally, I use a 1024x768 laptop display most of the time, so the anti-aliased fonts look pretty awful to me. In this shot, obviously, I am using Mozilla, and I have it set (as always) to use a gray background, as in my Windows colors:

I bet no one even sees that I posted this, given that it is hidden in the old news archive even now...
