(Yahoo) Open-system marketer Lindows.com broadened its position in the low-end networked PC and workstation arena this week, with the announcement of a $169 base-price BusinessStation service-oriented variant of its Webstation machine.
The new PC is aimed at the work terminal, public kiosk, retail information hub, school, and library markets. A $10 per machine monthly service charge provides BusinessStation owners with a customizable home page that is auto-launched for each new user.

BusinessStations run the LindowsCD version of the LindowsOS 4.0 operating system, and provide Web browsing, e-mail, and multimedia playback, along with Java and Microsoft Office Suite compatibility, the company said.
