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.

#37 Amiga Phoenix (hope they do call it that)

Mac and Amiga share processors, you know. There is a G4 upgrade for Amiga in the works, and a G3 to be released in the next month or two, as well as a new OS. Macworld and World of Amiga 99 are in the same week -- this week (WoA Saturday) -- more info on the new machine, plus a protype. Phoenix will be mine.
