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 just don't think it will do real well at that price.

And I don't like them putting out new iMacs every 3 months, it's confusing. If you like the iBook, I can understand why, a G3 laptop looks like a decent machine, but I think I would rather have Amiga's $500 or less equivalent networked in real-time to my Amiga. Hopefully more specs on that will be released tomorrow at World of Amiga in London, but perhaps it's too soon.
