Communicator to Ship with Mac OS X

Thursday July 8th, 1999

Waldo has this great news for Macintosh Mozilla users. Waldo writes, "According to MacOSRumors, 'OS X is expected to ship with at least one Web browser (Internet Explorer if Microsoft ports it, Communicator 5 for certain, as well as a trial version of OmniWeb 3.0 quite likely)'.

Cool! Mozilla shipping w/every new Mac 'for certain'. I like it!"

An unrelated point, since a lot of people here seem to be confused: MS didn't "save" Apple. The $150M that MS gave them is fairly insigificant; after all, Apple is worth billions and they have plenty of liquid assets to play with. It was a token, nothing more.

What Apple *really* gained in the deal was assurance that MS would continue to port Office to the Mac for the next several years.. although I wouldn't be surprised if MS reneged on that pretty soon.
