Micron takes subscriptions

A Subscription Computing program from Micron Electronics Inc. can simplify network connectivity and set up secure intranet or electronic commerce sites for offices with up to 2,500 workers.

Paul Desmond, a product manager for the Nampa, Idaho, PC maker, said the program lets agencies rent whatever new client PCs and software they want, receiving one monthly bill.

Agencies can plug PCs running Microsoft Windows or Apple Macintoshes into Micron's appliance server, which will supply all units with Digital Subscriber Line connectivity and e-mail service.

Desmond said the server has no keyboard or monitor and is configured from a CD-ROM inserted in one of the client PCs. The server runs a custom version of the UnixWare Application Server operating system from Santa Cruz Operation Inc. of Santa Cruz, Calif.

A bill for a server, 10 desktop systems, Net connectivity and full Web hosting, would run around $511 per month for 36 months.
