Description

The original NetWinder Linux microcomputer was developed by Corel and offered in 1998. In January 1999, Hardware Computing Canada of Ottawa acquired the NetWinder division from Corel and change the name of the combined company to Rebel.com. The company continued revising and manufacturing the NetWinder line of computers until July  2001 when Rebel filed for bankruptcy.

The hardware configuration of the Rebel.com rack-mounted NetWinder Server was similar to that of the original Corel NetWinder with some notable exceptions such as no multi-media support (audio and video) and a larger 3.5 inch hard disk that offered 10-26MBytes of storage.

The museum has a Rebel.com NetWinder server model  MWRM0735, serial number 800-00016. 

NetWinder documentation and other resources are available from netwinder.org site.
