There are 3 flavors of Mosiac available as NCSA -- X-Windows, Windows for the PC, and Mac for the Macintosh. X-Windows may have been the first out but the others work fine. I am running Mosoic on my '486 66 MHz pc under MS Windows 3.1 with absolutely no problems. I am using a winsock that came with Lantastic for Windows. What is required is an equivalent of a TCP/IP connection. And considering how slow it is to bring down some pages even on my 10 Mbit ethernet connection (LAN to WAN) using even a 28 K modem connection would be pure torture.
