"Linux just got one step closer to mainstream use in a deal between a small computer maker and Prodigy, one of the Internet's oldest service providers."
"Ebiz Enterprises and its Linux Store unit is aiming its $199 Internet device directly at ISPs, with the just-inked Prodigy deal leading the way."
"The online service sees Linux, the upstart, open-source operating system, as a good way to power either cheap Internet appliances or servers at the center of high-speed home computer networks, Prodigy chief technology officer Bill Kirkner said today. 'This provides a very effective, low-cost alternative,' Kirkner said."
