"You might think I'm talking about Linux and devices of the future, but I'm not. A bevy of devices that run Linux have already reached the marketplace, and many more are expected soon. There are personal digital assistants (PDAs) that run Linux, as well as computing tablets, electronic book readers, and more."
"Two devices that I like are Samsung's Yopy and Compaq's iPAQ. Yopy runs Linux natively, while Century Software Embedded Technologies has created a Linux bundle that runs on the iPAQ...."
"In addition, I expect you'll see Linux pop up in a large number of other devices in 2001. Some of these include Eagle Wireless International's set-top boxes and National Semiconductor's Geode WebPAD-a tablet-sized net device that offers a touchscreen and wireless capabilities."
