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.

#18 ATI?

Amiga targeted $499! I think it may be $599. Apple's iBook is going to cost $1599! Amiga's notebook will cost like $500 and network to the Amiga in real time (the appliance OSs and environment OE will be real-time. iBook customers may well feel raped when Amiga comes out (scheduled November) The computer's OS may be not, but we're only talking the first release. Much more info after this Saturday, too. Check back. (Hey, at least my posts are relevant in this forum!)

Also, it has been said ATI may not be able to deliver on time and that "rest assured that we're also looking at 3dfx and NVidea"
