"Neoware Systems Inc. wants to help manage appliances. Computing appliances, Neoware says, offer a less expensive and faster way to get the same functionality as a personal computer without having to be a technical genius to learn how to operate them. In fact, Neoware hopes its graphical user interfaces will make it so anyone can use Linux in its devices, even if that person's entire Linux reading library consists only of Linux for Dummies. Mike Kantrowitz, president and chief executive officer of Neoware in King of Prussia, Pa., accredits Linux with helping his business grow and emphasizes how Neoware's products bring the wonders of information appliances to users with varying degrees of technical know-how."

"Kantrowitz: Figures from the last six months show our sales are up close to 40 % from the prior year. Linux is an amazing contributor to our growth. We're seeing a great deal of demand for Linux in enterprises because it's so stable, it's so scalable and reliable, and I think it's really crossed the bridge and is being deployed in large numbers in enterprises. We're seeing demand for it in the market."
