Intel "Imad Sousou is the director of Intel's Open Source Technology Centre, which is behind the Moblin project aimed at providing optimized Linux technology for netbooks and mobile Internet devices. ZDNet Asia's sister site ZDNet UK caught up with Sousou at the Open Source In Mobile 09 event in Amsterdam last month to discuss the nature of Moblin and the hardware on which it will run." The interview also covers Intel's views on the netbook and MID market, Windows 7, ARM as a competitor, and Google's Chrome OS and how Intel is working with Google.

I understand that the Internet is far more than web browsing. I've been using it since 1990 on a regular basis (excluding my trips to BBS's prior to that time). One of my first experiences with the Internet was using Gopher, not HTTP. I "grew up", in the Internet sense, playing games via telnet (MUD's and the like). My first experience with web browsing was with Lynx and I thought it sucked compared to what Gopher offered. Times change and so did my opinion.

Recreationally, I use the Internet mostly for MMO gaming and to a much lesser extent, surfing. Web pages just happen to be, arguably, the most popular choice for interfaces to web technology. Anymore, when people say Internet, I just think of the distribution layer and not the content moving through it. Most people I know, however, think "surfing the world wide web" or something equivalent, which I why I chose the words I did earlier.

I'm not trying to argue with you. I was just trying to present another interpretation of what he said.
