"Eiger is not a general-purpose operating system. It can't run
games, office-productivity software or line-of-business
applications," he said. "We'll tell users that these kinds of
things won't run well in this environment."

Basically, it appears to me to be designed to run server-based applications.
It would be good for data processing workstations that rely on the server
for providing the real computing horsepower. Kind of like our workstations
that connect to our AS/400 via an emulation interface. It's a 'window' into
the AS/400...the real work is being done on the AS/400, none on the PC.

Thanks. This leads to a more-detailed table comparing two versions of
"lite xp" in development, Eiger and Monch:

Note that neither supports telephony or dial-up. See also

Well, maybe not MS Office products, but I bet it will work with OO.o or
Abiword
