"Plenty of folks still don't surf the Web at home, mostly
because they don't want to hassle with the complexities of your

"Another aspect of the Dot.Station is that it doesn't
include any Microsoft software. The unit runs an Intel-modified
version of the Red Hat Linux distribution, and initially the
Netscape 4.73 browser. Later versions will run Mozilla, a

"Hardware-wise, there's an Intel Celeron CPU (300 MHz to 400
MHz, depending on configuration), 32MB of memory, and a 4.3GB hard
disk drive. Intel expects later versions to be diskless, with all
required software stored in memory."
