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.

Some amiga people still want qnx ya know :) Mozilla is being ported to qnx by Nexware <>

What I'd like to see is the use of services provided by the internet in common appliances. For example a clock radio (or a walkman) with real audio channels, radio stations from all over the world and it would play mp3's. But what I'd really like to see is a $200 home computer that does internet, file taxes and print book reports for the kids. You'd just plug it in your tv and that's it.
