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!"

It currently looks like Apple wil not be putting a X11 client (I understand the naming sceme, but still find it silly) into MacOS X Client, as they will be using the "Quartz" imaging system. I have taken a look into some of the aspects of Quartz, and there are some real benifits to the system, which, once put into practice will become "must have" features for future OS's (we have seen this from Apple many times before). But, it does have the issue that it will make ports difficult... Things like going from a rasterized integir based addressing system to a vector-floating point system will make multiple resolutions on screen old hat... etc..
