Taiwanese firm First International Computer (FIC), said today it has signed a deal with Caldera to bundle OpenLinux 2.3 with PC systems it supplies. At the same time, FIC, which is currently in litigation with chip giant Intel, said it would intro the KA11 and KA31 motherboards, supporting the 133MHz frontside bus and using the VIA Apollo Pro 694X and 596B chipsets. Its third announcement was of the KC19+, a Slot 1 board which supports the Intel i820 chipset and includes two RIMMs for Rambus memory. FIC said that it would be introducing thin client and server business desktops which will come with OpenLinux 2.3. The first systems to appear with the OS will be its Sahara 1000 Slim Line PC and the Equinox 1530 Thin Client. The latter has networking capabilities onboard and supports a 40MB DOC SO-DIMM hard drive. ®
