The outfit that bought Corel's NetWinder business earlier this year has taken the wraps off the latest in the range of StrongARM-based Linux machines. The NetWinder Office Server is being aimed by Rebel.com at small and medium-sized businesses needing Internet, intranet and standard office server functions. Rebel.com? Yes, it was indeed Hardware Canada Computing (HCC) that bought the NetWinder division, but the company changed names in May, bought the rebel.com domain for $5 million, and rebranded with the aid of pictures of James Dean. It says the new name is "potentially one of the most expensive domain purchases in history," but doesn't mention how much, or if, it's paying for the late Mr Dean's contribution to the marketing. The new machines include proxy server and IP Masquerading, email, firewall and VPN features, and cross-platform file sharing and transfer with Linux, Unix, Windows and Mac. They use a 250 MIPS StrongARM SA-110 275MHz CPU, have 32-128 megabytes RAM, and up to 10 gigabyte hard drive. A twin-CPU rackmount version is also available. It'll ship in August. ®
