Linux Mozilla On Amiga

Wednesday July 21st, 1999

James Russell writes in with information regarding Mozilla on the new Amigas: "...Amiga has announced the NG Amiga MCC (multimedia convergence computer) will have an OS written atop the Linux kernel (and Java2, Jini, C++, and more) and X Windows as a lower-level piece of the new Amiga Workbench (GUI) which Amiga has said they will release back into the Linux open-source environment (yes, the Workbench) for people to improve on.

For this reason, Linux Netscape will run on NG Amiga 'seamlessly', as they put it, and therefore those programming Linuxzilla now are actually programming NG Amigazilla along with it."

Interesting news - it'll be interesting to see how Amiga accomplishes their goal.

Umm. Forgive my total ignorance but... is there ANY relation between the old Amiga machine (that I think of from say 1987) and the new Gateway Amiga? It sounds like a totally new thing, in which case what's all this about backward compatiblity to the old amiga? I'm confused if this new computer is an intel machine, a ppc, or what...?

Secondly, has it been established that Transmeta is designing some kind of new superchip?

I love the way everyone's switching to unix-style OS except for one company...
