"...although Linux still has a large and dedicated following,
companies like Red Hat and VA Linux, among others who thought they
could make money through Linux, have had a hard time."
"Into this gloom will come Indrema ... maybe...."
"Indrema does looks like classic vapor. The company has
sidestepped each delay by promising a more and more elaborate
system. Now, instead of a mere gaming system, the console will have
to be nothing less than "The Future of TV" to make some people
wonder if the delay is worth it."
"Yeah, Indrema will do games, the company says. But it will also
be a DVD player, a Tivo-like personal video recorder, a
broadband-ready Internet appliance, an MP3 player, and, for good
measure, a compact PC with a wireless keyboard. And since the whole
thing will be open source, users can tinker with it, upgrade its
videocard, and run programs written by a cult of developers all
over the world."
