From an IDG News Service story on Internet appliciances: "The new Internet Computer is the antithesis of the two MSN machines.
Its OS is Linux, running invisibly in the background. Netscape 4.73 is its
browser. Both load from a CD-ROM. The NIC is the most computerlike of the
three appliances, with a small vertical case, two stand-alone speakers, a tabletop
mouse (with mouse pad), and a full-size computer keyboard that lacks the
shortcut buttons included on the MSN Companions."
