"The Indrema/CollabNet partnership is more than the usual
corporate waltz: find out how the two companies are going to propel
the gaming world into the Open Source age."
"On October 1, Indrema and CollabNet will launch the Indrema
Developer Network (IDN), a project aimed at handing the tools and
support open source developers need to produce high-quality games
for Indrema's gaming console."
"News of embedded Linux making inroads in industrial
applications, set-top boxes, thin clients, handhelds, and wireless
devices is certainly already widespread, but Indrema is walking
into a market dominated by hegemons unused to being challenged by
any besides the other big players: Sega, Sony, and Nintendo.
Microsoft's X-Box is even considered a dicey challenge."
"The Indrema console should prove to be fast, powerful, and
versatile: its designers have positioned it as not only a gaming
console, but a full-featured entertainment system, capable of
playing MP3's, web surfing, and more. While there's no question it
will be able to run some good games, the real question is whether
it can survive a market once again repeating a cycle of brutal
competition, as it does every time the technology moves forward
enough to make the reigning platform seem a little stale."
