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.

just a quick note Kovu, I am really looking forward to more choice in the computing world and that's what Amiga is going to be so don't think I'm challenging anything else about what you're saying except this. MS did not bail out Apple. 150 million dollars couldn't bail out a small town grocery store. I'm rooting for Amiga. But I'm also rooting for Apple and for Be and for Linux too. THe best thing of all, however, it that Mozilla will be responsible in part for the success of each of them.
