"The branded Intel box running Linux, first revealed by The Register last year, has become generally available for system providers to resell. The machine, manufactured by an unnamed third party, already has design wins, said Marta Hasler, an Intel executive at the Home Group division of the company."

"The appliance, only available so far in a "beautiful Intel metallic blue" is being re-packaged in the US by Sageport, and aimed at senior citizens over the age of 55, and in France by e-laser. There is also a win with a Spanish provider, Hasler said."

"While it supports DSL and phone line technologies, ISDN is not supported, while the only software offered with it are a Web browser and email software. Senior citizens browsing the Web will be able to download files, but it will not be possible to install executable programs, said Hasler."
