Uh, Amiga will support standard APIs, that's how. To those of us who pay attention, the future becomes clear. And yes, AOL made the initial deal with MS to get the place on the desktop, but they had the option to pull out of that deal this year and haven't yet, and won't, until NS is up to punch to replace it. Windows 98 is the last bastion of MS tyrancy, and if you don't like it, get off the Mozilla advocacy channel. Open source will wipe their closed code asses off the map because, as AOL has proved, free software that works is better than $200 software that doesn't.
