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."

Surprised

Kind of surprised that some eccentric million/billionaire hasn't yet dropped $$$ on one of these niche OS projects. After all, these are our childhood. I suppose once the current crop of first gen computer billionaires retires we might see it happen. I think ReactOS claimed to Medvedev that they could "finish" their OS if they had $1,000,000--wouldn't it be rich if Bill gave 'em the money in his will ;-)?

(Please no one say "Shuttleworth".)
