"Linbox, the inventor of Linbox Network Architecture (LNA) and leading Linux Network Computer designer in Europe, announced today that Europ@Web, the Internet industrial arm of Group Arnault, and Financière de Brienne, have invested 2.5 million Euros (US$2.25M) in the company."

"Linbox will use these funds to develop its range of professional services to schools, small organisations and corporate networks looking for an affordable, easy-to-install, easy-to-maintain network computing solution that is fully compatible with legacy applications and operating systems. Linbox Network Architecture is an open approach to Linux Network Computing based on diskless standard computers on the desktop side (such as the Linbox Net Station), and full featured servers (such as the Linbox Net Server)."

"The Linbox Network Architecture allows users and systems integrators to bring the power of Linux to the desktop at minimal costs while still preserving user investments in Windows or MacOS software," said Jean Pierre Laisné, CEO of Linbox. "Diskless Linbox Net Stations can be set up in a matter of minutes by users with no previous skills in the Linux environment and require no maintenance."
