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.

More connectivity than a $2000 PC, but how much will it cost? I cringe at the idea of a completely new architecture that has yet to benefit from economies of scale.

As for ATI doing their graphics, this is not really good news, just look at ATI's current hardware. I would be much more excited if 3dfx or nVidia were in on it.

So... how 'bout that Athlon? :)
