Rebel.com, the company that bought Corel's NetWinder Net server product line, has become Transmeta's latest customer.

The Canadian company said it will use Crusoe in an upcoming line of home and small office Linux-based Net access sharing devices. Rebel.com wants the chip for two reasons: its x86 compatibility and its low power consumption, which Rebel.com can shove it in a small box without a fan - an important consideration for small form-factor, no-maintenance servers that are designed to be left in a corner, hooked up to both Net and LAN, and largely ignored.

For the time being at least, Rebel.com will continue to use ARM's StrongARM CPU in its NetWinder line. ®
