Text and images (which alone are well worth the visit) from trygve.com: "When Linux was first ported to the Furby platform, it suffered from significant stability and performance problems, which gave the Furby an unfortunate reputation
as being unsuitable for enterprise-level computing. The conversion of the IRS and NASA computing facilities to Furby-based platforms towards the end of 1999
was seen by many as premature and may have contributed to the problems experienced by those departments during 2000 which did nothing to improve the
Furby's image in corporate America."
