"A low-cost Internet device on display at LinuxWorld a week ago
is offering to drive the cost of accessing the Internet below $200.
And the chief backer of the company behind the device, Larry
Ellison, is one of the richest men in the world."
"The new device... runs Linux... [and has] a 266 MHz Cyrix
processor, 64 megabytes of memory, a CD ROM drive and a 56K modem.
The device contains no hard disk and for $199 no monitor is
included. It can be used on either an Ethernet local area
network or be plugged into a phone jack."
"The New Internet Computer makes use of WinToNet software from
Menta Software (ww.mentasoftware.com), which uses a Java Virtual
Machine to deliver a standard Windows-like interface to the
device's monitor. The device may obtain and display information
from a Windows application running on a server, with WinToNet."
