"Another aspect of the Dot.Station is that it doesn't include any Microsoft software. The unit runs an Intel-modified version of the Red Hat Linux distribution, and initially the Netscape 4.73 browser. Later versions will run Mozilla, a Netscape-like open-source browser for Linux."
"Hardware-wise, there's an Intel Celeron CPU (300 MHz to 400 MHz, depending on configuration), 32MB of memory, and a 4.3GB hard disk drive. Intel expects later versions to be diskless, with all required software stored in memory."
