"It sits on my desk purring away. No, I'm not talking about my
cat, Rosina...although she is also known to do the same. I'm
talking about my little Rebel.com NetWinder DM (development
"Coincidently, Rosina's favorite place these days is laying down
on the papers on my desk, nestled up against the NetWinder. I think
she likes the warmth and the buzz of the small fan. When I walk
into the office in the morning, it's not unusual to find the little
computer pushed against the wall and my lunatic cat sprawled out on
the desktop with the books, papers, and coffee cups scattered all
over the floor."
"In the year I've owned it, Rebel.com's machine has taken
everything Rosina and I can shove at it. It's a little gem.
Although I purchased mine from Corel Computer, it's the same basic
hardware anybody can buy today. But, like many Linux products, it's
been a work in progress. The software has gone through some
dramatic development since I took delivery. Throughout the process,
my NetWinder has been rock stable and reliable. However, when I
upgraded the BIOS, kernel, and disk image last autumn, it proved to
be a scary yet very educational experience."
