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.

there is a good jdk/jre.. the blackdown port runs great.. the kaffe runtime environment works on dozens of platforms including linux..

i wouls personally like to see the jre plugin "activator" it was on blackdown for a while, but now removed.. i run oracle applications release 11, and it limits me to Windows platforms since the Jinitiator is only available for windows, and sun hasn't ported a public copy of the java plugin for linux yet..

what i would do to be able to not boot windows just to debug some gui work on applications 11..

and WHY would oracle use java and limit the client use to windows.. bah.. beats me.

but go mozilla go.. get a good jre/java plugin and i'll be one happy camper
