  1. Consumer Linux specialist Lindows yesterday launched KooBox, a $449 PC - including monitor - moving the company even further into the hardware arena.

    The KooBox is actually made by US systems builder MicroTron 2000. It's based on a 1.2GHz AMD Duron processor, bundles 256MB of PC133 SDRAM, offers 20GB of hard disk storage and a 56x CD-ROM unit. Graphics acceleration is integrated into the unnamed chipset, which also offers 10/100 Ethernet and a 56KBps modem.

    Just thought of this: "Graphics acceleration is integrated into the unnamed chipset". Now, is this some proprietary hardware?
    If so, pretend you wanted to run windows on it at some time, would there be windows drivers for it? And if not, how is this not worse than the problems linux developers have when trying to get drivers created for stuff like "winmodems"?
