Open source in Japan: Q&A with the President of Plat'Home

| ...ultimately, I believe the opportunity for Linux expanding into a
| wide range of devices, including, of course, entertainment devices like
| set-top boxes, cell phones, and other mobile devices, radically dwarfs
| the opportunity for broadcast entertainment. Even today, when you search,
| when you make a phone call, when you do online banking, you're using
| Linux. And it's only the beginning. I wanted to be a part of that.
|
| Asay: Plat'Home started selling Linux in Japan in 1993. That's really early
| days. Why Linux?
|
| Suzuki: Linux is powerful, in a lot of ways, especially for what it
| doesn't do. Let me explain. It's possible to deliver more computing
| power -- that is, more functionality and more stability -- into a wide
| range of devices, especially small ones. Its small footprint was very
| appealing. This was already apparent even from early on. Basically, we
| saw it as having the potential to get very sophisticated software into
| the hands of users. No compromises.

It looks like a really cool device but...

----> "Windows DeviceInstaller software " What's up with that?

I'd get one but what the hell do I do with it? There's no USB ports to
connect to.
