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.

I'm sorry, Steve Jobs said "The era of competition between us [Apple and Microsoft] is over." Is there anything else to say about Apple? I don't like their prices. That iBook costs $1698 for the wireless version. That's obscene. I didn't like Amiga prices back when, either. I am not bashing Apple because they bash Amigans, and they do, I'm bashing them because their business model revolves around inflated prices and having to upgrade every five minutes, just like Microsoft.
