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.

My point exactly. Apple fans are not Amiga fans and have never been. This is not about Apple. Apple had their shot, and still haven't broken even 5% of the market.

Also, I've used PCs, Amigas, and Macs, and I don't find MacOS particularly intuitive at all. It's all a matter of choice. I don't choose to pay Apple's high prices for computers that don't do very much.

I am not trying to bash Apple so much as point out their faults and help show why Amiga is making certain decisions. Anyway, keep your Apple. You can run the Amiga Information Appliance Environment from it.
