    "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 :)
