"The most eagerly anticipated debut at LinuxWorld hasn't exactly
been a secret. But ever since Eazel went public, boasting a stellar
management team including legendary Macintosh software guy Andy
Herzfeld, Bud Tribble (Apple, NeXT co-founder and lately
Netscape/AOL CTO), and others from the original Mac team, world+dog
has been wondering whether it could live up to its promise. Namely,
making Linux as easy to use as the Mac."
"LinuxWorld has been Eazel's coming out party, and it's with a
self-denial bordering on the Jesuit that we waited for Herzfeld
himself to take us through Nautilus, Eazel's pride and joy. We were
honoured to hear that Andy is a Register reader, so no
parlez-vous-Vulture preliminaries were necessary. But, you cry, is
it any good?"
"Nautilus is Eazel's file manager for Gnome. But the most
remarkable thing about Eazel is that it doesn't plan to make money
from Nautilus at all. Eazel is a straight services company, or as
they used to say way back in 1998, a "portal play."
