"Neoware Systems (Nasdaq: NWRE), the leading supplier of award-winning software and solutions for the emerging Appliance Computing market, today introduced NeoLinux 2.0, the latest version of its embedded Linux operating system, at Comdex Fall 2000, taking place this week in Las Vegas. Neoware's products are on display in the National Semiconductor Pavilion, Booth #L1909, in station NS404."

"NeoLinux is an embedded version of the industry-standard Red Hat (Nasdaq: RHAT) Linux operating system, targeted at computing appliances. Unlike traditional versions of Linux, which run on desktops or servers, NeoLinux is streamlined and optimized to power a new generation of Internet-connected computing devices, including thin clients, firewalls, routers, security devices, web kiosks, email stations and more."

"NeoLinux 2.0 features a newly designed, customizable user interface designed specifically for desktop computing appliances. Called ezConnect 2.0, this new Neoware-designed user interface lets users and administrators easily create connections to run Microsoft Windows applications on servers, UNIX applications via the X Window protocol, terminal connections to mainframes and minicomputers, Netscape Navigator Internet connections for applications such as kiosk deployments, and custom connections to launch virtually any Linux application. Using ezConnect, administrators can easily lock down the user interface to prevent unauthorized modifications. Unlike traditional Linux interfaces, ezConnect requires no Linux programming experience, and can be customized without training to completely tailor the Linux desktop, automatically launch new applications at startup, and create custom computing appliances for a wide variety of markets."
