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."

Wait, how can gcc shipped with AmigaOS and MorphOS NOT be open source? Pretty sure the GPL license isn't quite like the BSD license where you can just snag the code and not release any changes, or is it?

There are serious licensing problems within the Amiga community.

Errm.. the sources for the GCC, binutils etc. that ship with AmigaOS 4.x's SDK are right here:
