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.

#41 huh?

Upgrading every 5 minutes come on. They release new version of thier OS fast (which is a good thing). Depending on the update you can download it for free or get the new version for like $20 on CD.

Speaking of upgrades Linux is just as bad. They release new kernels every week it seems and new "packaging" libraries.

As for the wireless price you're including the AirPort thingie. I don't know of anything that uses that so really you don't need it and you can always buy it later if you just want it. But the neat thing is the retractable power cord/adapter and 6-8 hours of battery life. Maybe it avaible on other things, but you don't really hear about ti.
