"Lineo, Inc., formerly known as Caldera Thin Clients, has
announced an agreement with MeterNet Corp. that is designed to
power the set-top TV Internet access market with the Linux
operating system (OS)."
"MeterNet's new wb8680L set-top product, designed for OEMs
(original equipment manufacturers), will run Embrowser, Lineo's
graphical embedded micro Web browser for Linux. "Companies building
a customer loyalty base, like online banking, will use the
mid-range device to increase Internet-based interaction and secure
e-commerce transactions," said a joint statement."
"The Lineo product was chosen, according to MeterNet,
because it will lend OEM customers a greater degree of flexibility
over other platform-based solutions. The first Linux-based
devices -- which will utilize a Cyrix processor and broadband
Ethernet connection for access via cable, DSL or satellite -- is
set to ship in the first quarter of 2000.'
