Combat fraud and increase customer satisfaction

Linux distributor Caldera's hardware operation, Cadera Thin Clients, will today change its name to Lineo, a move designed to highlight the business' shift towards the embedded arena. Lineo's new strategy will focus on getting its embedded version of Linux, Embedix, into set-top boxes and the like, broading the scope of the open source OS away from its computing roots. The company will continue to offer DR DOS as an alternative embbeded OS -- Linux will join, not supercede, that operating system, Lineo CEO Bryan Sparks told US newswires. That said, the name change does suggest a rather more Linux-oriented focus than that. And Lineo is actively engaged in porting its DR DOS apps over to the open source OS, including its WebSpyder browser, to be rechristened Embrowser. Meanwhile, Lineo also promised it will announce a major tie-in with "the world's leading provider of embedded computing technology" -- though it wouldn't say who -- at Linux World in four weeks' time. ®
