,----[ Quote ]
| The device '@Box' has been designed to provide computer utility, along with 
| Internet surfing cum entertainment on the TV. From a technological point of 
| view, '@Box' works on the Linux operating system, and comes with a remote 
| keyboard, mouse, and joystick interfaces. Users can also access 3D games, 
| videoconferencing, IPTV, and VoIP services with this device.     



Where does Linux go from here?

,----[ Quote ]
| Linux and free software are here to stay. No single commercial firm will ever 
| control the Linux ecosystem like Microsoft has the rest of the software 
| industry. Though both may prosper, the bazaar will outlive the boardrooms, 
| and Linux popularity will continue to grow on servers, desktops, appliances, 
| and embedded devices.    


Linux to grow 278% in embedded/mobile/real-time apps

,----[ Quote ]
| Linux use in "next" embedded, mobile, and real-time projects will grow 278 
| percent over that in "previous" projects, suggests a recent survey by Venture 
| Development Corp. (VDC).   


Virtual appliances spawn new class of Linux distros

,----[ Quote ]
| Traditionally, vendors have based appliances on Linux by preconfiguring their 
| software on a dedicated x86 server. For instance, open source networking 
| specialist Vyatta Inc. sells networking appliances with router, firewall and 
| virtual private network software on a Dell Inc. PowerEdge server.
