BW: First Linux-based Wireless Thin Clients Being Developed by Maxspeed and LinuxOne

“Maxspeed Corporation and LinuxOne, Inc., Mountain View, CA,
today announced a joint development project for the first wireless
thin-client using Bluetooth communications technology.”

“Bluetooth is an emerging but broadly-supported global industry
standard for wireless LAN connectivity. Its application to
Linux-based thin-client computing systems is a breakthrough in
creating more simplified, cost-effective computing networks for
businesses and government agencies. It further reduces information
technology personnel requirements for network connection and
maintenance, thus drastically lowering cost of ownership.”

Under the planned development contract, LinuxOne will help
Maxspeed embed this wireless communications technology in upcoming
Linux-based thin-client products. Wireless, Linux-based systems
from Maxspeed will be announced in Q2 2000.
