"Former Compaq Computer Corp. executives are staffing and funding an Internet computer start-up that is building a novel, ultra-compact business computer employing neither of the PC industry's usual technologies."
"The company, called RLX Technologies Inc., is expected to announce Tuesday a management team that includes Compaq co-founder Gary Stimac as its new chief executive, people close to the company said."
"Unlike Internet servers made by Compaq and Dell Computer Corp., RLX's initial computers are being designed with Transmeta Corp. chips, which because of their low power consumption are used in laptop PCs, and a version of the open-source Linux software, according to these people. A spokesman for RLX declined to comment on the company or its plans."
