"Intel plans to release later this summer software that could
drastically simplify the use of Linux-based Web appliances and
"The software, a development kit aimed at device makers,
lets developers add support for a specification called Universal
Plug and Play to devices including Net appliances, home gateways,
routers and other equipment. Theoretically, Universal Plug and
Play-enabled devices can identify and configure themselves to run
over a network and exchange information."
"Intel sees the specification, and others like it, as key to
driving acceptance of consumer-level computing gear. Unlike
business users, consumers are unlikely to buy home-networking
equipment that's too complex or difficult to set up."
