Nokia/Intel's New Set-top and Mozilla

Tuesday October 12th, 1999

The set-top boxes due next year from a new Nokia/Intel venture will run Linux as their core OS, and Mozilla as their browser.

You can read more news in this CNet article, or this article at The Register.

Nokia has thrown its weight behind MHP (Multimedia Home Platform), an open, Java-based standard for set-top boxes, meant to be OS-agnostic. Sony, Philips and Panasonic have also put backing behind the MHP standard.

This is the second piece we've had regarding Nokia and Mozilla. If you recall, Nokia used Mozilla in their tech demo of "MediaScreen".

Thanks to Jedbro and Asa for the news.

would be really nice *if* we had a good JDK/JRE for Linux. Sun makes money off of licensing Java to third-party developers. Since it looks like these developers are starting to use Linux and Java, I can only hope that sun realizes the potential here and actually does something about the rather poor Java support on Linux that exists today.

Here's hoping....
