"The PC market might be down, but it's in much better
shape than the Internet appliance business."
"BICBox of Newbury Park has an interesting compromise between a
PC and a network appliance. It gives users the reliability of a
system that can't be messed up by the user along with some of the
flexibility of a PC. The $299 BICBox doesn't come with a monitor or
a hard drive, but it does come with Linux; for an additional $99,
you can use Windows 98 Second Edition."
