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.
Seems there will be a new computer from phase 5 due next year called the Ami-Rage based on up to 4 G4 ppc chips and the QNX Neutrino OS. Here's some info on the hardware: <http://www.phase5.de/amiga/amiragee>.html And here's the QNX for Amiga page <http://www.qnx.com/amiga/> As you can see, QNX is doing its part in supporting classic amiga users by giving Neutrino for free to every classic amiga user with the powerup accelerator card. There's also a developer program in place for this new system. Amiga Inc doesn't have one in place yet nor will they tell us what CPU they're using! Anyway, there's a mozilla Neutrino port in progress thanks to <http://www.nexwarecorp.com/>
