"This week at COMDEX Fall 2000 Rhode Island-based Internet
appliance infrastructure company WebMachines unveiled iaClient for
Linux, the latest offering in WebMachines' iaClient software
product family for Internet devices. Developed for companies
seeking to market a feature-rich customizable Internet appliance
solution to consumers and business users, iaClient is a complete
embedded software suite designed to leverage the flexibility of the
open source operating system Linux. This new flavor of iaClient
benefits from the platform independence and rapid product
development cycle times that are the tradition of Linux and the
open source community."
"This announcement brings WebMachines one step closer to
realizing its goal of enabling access to information anywhere, any
time, from any device. And, unlike other industry solutions,
iaClient software ensures that device providers retain all the
benefits of their own Internet appliance deployment - benefits
which include ownership of data and email accounts, branding
opportunities, revenue from ISP fees, advertising, partnerships,
sponsorships, referral fees, content deals, and more."
"iaClient for Linux can be custom configured with a browser,
email, chat, and current media players. It boasts a wide array of
current popular plug-ins such as Macromedia Flash and RealNetworks
RealPlayer G2. It also has an optional Java Virtual Machine to
ensure cutting edge browser functionality. As with other iaClient
solutions, iaClient for Linux can work with WebMachines' own
iaNetwork family of managed servers and can be configured to work
with any third party services. Such flexibility ensures iaClient
for Linux continues the company's tradition of providing Internet
appliance solutions "Powered by WebMachines" that are customizable,
feature-rich, and end-user friendly."
