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.

"There are no home computer apps for linux and Amiga needs them if it plans on selling to ordinary users."

What about Corel WordPerfect (Nov.), CorelDraw, and Netscape 5.0 (Dec.)? And just because more apps aren't out now doesn't mean they aren't being worked on. Amiga gives people a lot more incentive to work on Linux, and they get a ton of free programmers to boot. Anyway, I'm not sure how you think QNX would get more software than Linux.
