AmiZilla Project Continues to Grow

Saturday June 7th, 2003

David Gates ( writes in with an update on the AmiZilla project, which aims to raise a bounty for the first person or team to port Mozilla to Amiga OS. Since we last reported on the effort, the pot has grown to $3,661 and an AmiZilla FAQ and a set of AmiZilla guidelines have been created. In addition, an AmiZilla marketing campaign has been launched to gain publicity for the project and an AmiZilla Yahoo! Group has been set up to help coders collaborate on the port. Finally, the German Amiga Arena site has interviewed Bill Panagouleas, the founder of the project, with some AmiZilla-specific questions towards the end of the article.

Update! David Gates contacted us again with news that several parts of the AmiZilla site, including the FAQ and guidelines, have been updated. The FAQ now contains information about Hot CoCo, a future project to build a Java Virtual Machine for the AmiZilla port. The campaign also has its own mascot (think Green Mozilla after a series of oestrogen injections) designed by Eric Schwartz. Finally, Slashdot has reported on the porting effort and the booty now stands at $4,045.45.

Just to make it clear. AmigaOS4 is the official new Amiga operating system. AmigaOS4 is not ready yet, nor is MorphOS. A÷lso AmigaOS4 will be PPC native, it will have m68k emulation for old software compatibility.

And those Articia bugs are not so clear. people are not so sure if same bug can cause problems both in AmigaOne and Pegasos. It's also possible that VIA-chips are those which cause problems. you need just to look Amiga forums like <> to see that discussion. Many AmigaOne users have not been able to reproduce those problems which Pegasos users did have before the fix. So that issue still is not clear.
