AOL did buy CompuServe, years ago, before the dot-com bubble started
inflating much.

Iirc, AOL for Windows is still IE-based (for now) but I'd thought I'd
heard that on the Mac, it is now Netscape/Mozilla based.

As to apt-getting through a Windows box as a gateway, so long as your
NAT is working okay, it *should* work.
