What was it called?

A few years ago, while there was still a dot-com bubble, there was a
company selling an internet appliance with a flat screen, which after
its release took about a day for someone to figure out how to get it
to run Linux. The company was selling them at a loss and making things
up in subscriptions, except that you didn’t need a subscription if
you were going to run Linux on it.

Anyone remember what they were called?

They weren’t href="http://www.linuxjournal.com/article.php?sid=3288">Netwinders,
which is the word that is stuck in my head preventing me from thinking
of the right one, and which are thin clients; this was a modem-based
all-in-one home internet appliance that by design could only use the
subscription service.
