"The future of Linux is on your TV," proclaimed the Indrema website. Reading further, I was informed that the Indrema entertainment system would be a "revolutionary product built on a revolutionary operating system, Linux." An easy-to-use, entertainment appliance: "Just turn it on, and sit back on your couch."
"Not a PC, mind you. "This is no desktop Linux system," continued the website pitch, "this is Linux for TV, for game addicts, for total entertainment. Out of the box, you can hook it up and begin playing unbelievably realistic 3D games, browsing the Net at high speed, or just enjoying personal TV or MP3 favorites."
"Of course, there were the usual consumer product pitches, like "We want everyone to be able to have one," and "Put one in your living room, den, or your kids bedroom." But what really caught my eye, was the claim that "the wonderful world of Linux just got a little better. It's going to change your life, and perhaps your neighbors. Try it today, and join the revolution."
