Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
NetZero (Nasdaq:NZRO), a leading provider of advertising and
commerce-supported Internet access, today announced that it will be
packaged with the New Internet Computer, or NIC."
"NICs, priced at $199, are simple, affordable Internet
appliances that give users quick and easy e-mail and Web access.
NetZero's Linux-based Z3 software will provide NIC customers with
free lifetime Internet access and will be bundled with the NIC for
a minimum 1-year period."
"The new NIC appliances were recently announced by The New
Internet Co., a Larry Ellison-owned Oracle (Nasdaq:ORCL) spin off,
and are designed to run on open-source, Linux-based software.
The Linux version of NetZero's Z3 software delivers
near-identical functionality to its Windows counterpart and was
created specifically to run on the NIC appliance."
