The Register: Celerons and Linux to power Intel Web appliances

“Intel will announce its plans for consumer Web appliances at a

The company is to sell appliances with the Intel logo to
telecom operators and service providers, which will then sell them
on to consumers….

“An Intel representative confirmed that the machines will run a
version of the Linux OS, and will use Celeron, not StrongARM
processors to power the boxes. This is a bit of a volte face, as
Chipzilla originally had plans to incorporate the StrongARM
technology it acquired as part of a FTC-brokered deal with Digital,
in such devices.”
