***MAJOR MozBin Release (kind of)***

The biggest binary yet, WINDOWS NT 5.0, can now be downloaded!

Looks like MS screwed up big time! First reported at betanews.com, Microsoft has released NT5 Beta 1814 server and workstation for Alpha and x86. It can be found at the URL below. Check it out! Its a HUGE download! While it is on a Microsoft Germany server, it should be in english. ***THIS IS ON MICROSOFTS PUBLIC SERVER!!!*** I must emphasize that, it is not some cracked warez version!

Click here to pay MS NT5 a visit!

Reward? More like punishment for those who use it. Get Linux, it pays.

Do this really qualify as a news item at <i><b>mozilla</b>Zine</i>? <br>Maybe I misunderstood, but I truly hope the aim of this site (<i>which is an excellent idea</i>) is to report on Mozilla-related events rather than, for example, MSNT5-related events.

Sincerly, Ludvig A.

the worst thing that can ever happen to M$ is if Netscape bought RedHat and put a good GUI on it!!

And also get a openGL API to work on linux so games running in opengl could run on it...(quake, sin, ect...)

It was just meant to be slightly humorous. We won't be having MS or IE news unless it directly impacts the Mozilla effort.

I don't really expect that anyone has any interest in NT5. I know I don't!

Well, there's nothing wrong in trying to cheer people up now, is there? Sorry for picking ;)

Btw, nobody will ever read this thread again, right?
