AMD Eighteen months after shipping, AMD's Personal Internet Communicator, aimed at lowering the cost of computing so half the world could enjoy Internet access by 2015, apparently still doesn't run Linux. It now appears the design may actually be rigged to block the use of Linux.

PIC is noting more than a low cost PC, if General Software produce BIOS for medical equipament or for customer who don't want they equipament being used for other purposes don't make sense in such context.

So, they rendered the PIC a capped version of full blow computer although it can behave as such, a complete disrespect for their customers.
