"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."
