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.

Any one rember the a/box? Phase 5's 603 machine that ran a ppc version of AmigaOS. I think it was scraped because of the failure of the bebox. They looked alike. Any way hope Phase5 can keep there intrest longer than prototype stage. Besides isn't 4 g4's overkill? Is the ami-rage susposted to be a fast lightweight media/internet computer, or a large server?
