"Oracle spin-off New Internet Computer Company (NICC) has released version 2.0 of the operating system for its NIC: a Linux-based Internet appliance. According to the company, the enhancements are centered around streamlining the device's usability and improving the ease with which the device can connect to various broad-band and dialup ISP's."

"This newest version of the OS is available as a free upgrade on CD to current NIC users."

"NICC shaves some of the costs of the device by using no hard drive. User preferences and bookmarks are saved in flash RAM and the OS itself is loaded from CD ROM. Since the product's initial release, Linux enthusiasts have managed to create their own boot CD's to add to the functionality already provided by the device or to simply use them as diskless X workstations."
