MozillaZine's ChromeZone Now Open!

Monday May 24th, 1999

Steve Morrison, creator of the XULTool, has joined MozillaZine (as some of you may already know). He has been hard at work getting the XULTool working on our site, and we're pleased to announce that the ChromeZone is now online.

Now, with a simple form, you can change the look and feel of Mozilla, and create your own themes! You can also choose from some ready-made themes we have available. You can also send your own themes to ChromeZone for addition to our site.

So, fire up apprunner and head over to the chromeZone.

We got a lot of great entries for our little "name our new chrome area" contest, but in our final vote, "ChromeZone" came out on top. A number of people submitted the name "ChromeZone" or a variation for our contest. Clayton Scott was the first, however, and his prize is a stuffed Mozilla doll from Netscape. I know we didn't promise any prizes for the contest, but we wanted to give something to the winner.

Thanks to everyone for you contributions, and if you have any suggestions for the chromeZone, let us know.

okay, so this computer comes out that's built real-time from the ground up, see rant above, standard DVD, Hi-Res, superior graphics, full software support at launch. You have a computer that does twice as much as Windows 98, much better, at a fraction the hard drive space, tiny board, open architecture (anyone can clone it), four times as fast. $599 (maybe $499).

For about $999, the same price as one iMac or a tolerable PC, you can have an Amiga home computer and an Amiga set-top deviced that comes inherently networked to your home computer.

Or, for the same rough price you can have an Amiga palm top (or notebook) that is also inherently networked to your computer. For about the same price as you pay for a nice computer now, $1500 or so, you can have an Amiga, a palm-top, and a set-top -- all networked together by the same OE (OS + GUI + see <http://www.amiga.com>). Try getting Windows CE to talk to Windows NT to talk to 2000 to talk to 98? HAVE FUN. Windows in real-time -- ever?

But the Amiga developer system, out about the same time as M11 will be an x86 machine, and mine might work nicely.

The weak-ass iMac kind of tore up the computer market last X-mas for $1399. I think Amiga and Gateway can sell an Amiga for $599. Like 80% of this country has yet to buy a PC, or be dependent on Windows, or even Mac.
