Amiga & AROS "The Timberwolf team is proud to announce the immediate availability of the first beta version of Timberwolf 4.0.1. Timberwolf is an AmigaOS web browser based on Firefox/Mozilla technology. This technology is more than just a browser, it is an enabling technology, bringing powerful tools such as html5, WebM, JavaScript, XUL, and more to AmigaOS 4.x. These are the building blocks for other applications as well, such as the email client 'Thunderbird' or the media center 'Songbird'. This first beta release includes almost the full functionality of the browser, allowing style-sheet enabled web browsing, secure connections, use of Firefox add-on and more."

You tellin me you wouldn't laugh at someone running WFW? be honest now...its the same thing. its a LONG ABANDONED OS, hell most of the guys that built the thing are dead or in rest homes and if you and the rest of the geezers spent even 1/10th the time trying to keep a LONG ABANDONED OS going onto something that wasn't a long rotted corpse you might actually have something that isn't...well as smelly as grandpa's closet.

Why not go to haiku if you like the Amiga way? or one of the bazillion *NIX derivatives? hell you can't even get any real support or updates for the thing because its trapped forever in legal limbo. hell you can buy a cheap box with a Commodore branding now but you will NEVER see Amiga come back friend, its gone.

So I'm sorry but there isn't even a spark of life left, its a museum exhibit now, right along with IBM 5150s and Apple IIs and GEOS. Do you seriously expect people NOT to make fun of you surfing on junk so damned old it probably farts dust when you fire it up? I mean do you see apple guys going "you'll take my system 7 when you pry it from my cold dead fingers!" or Windows users going "Stay away from my Hot Dog Stand desktop you heretic!" yet you expect the world NOT to laugh at you? i'm sorry but its seriously laugh worthy.
