Lindows.com Announces Mozilla-Based Nvu Web Publishing Software

Wednesday October 29th, 2003

Michael Robertson, CEO of Lindows.com, has announced that his company is starting a project to build an easy-to-use Web publishing product for Linux. The new application, called Nvu (pronounced 'N-view'), will be based on Mozilla Composer and released under the Mozilla Public License. Lindows.com has contracted Daniel Glazman of Disruptive Innovations to be the lead developer, though the company hopes to attract other contributors. Version 1.0 of Nvu is expected in the first quarter of 2004. See the Nvu FAQ for more information.

There should be no reason why this product won't run on Windows so I hope on that web site they'll also promote windows builds when they become available rather than leave it to a 3rd party to host them...

The reasons:

1) As a user of both Windows and Linux I like being able to use the same apps across both as much as possible

2) People who want to make the transition to Linux will find it easier if all their favourite tools are available on both platforms
