The point? To generate excitement around the Atari name again. To raise their stock price a bit. To make them look like a real tech company instead of a holding company. To cash in on an old, once respected name.

If it's just another internet box it'll go the way of the Ouya (remember that one?) The Atari name doesn't carry much weight any more.

Indeed. They're just trying to capetilize on a name they own; there's little point to it from the consumer standpoint.

Maybe some Indrema hopefulls will latch onto Linux aspect, but other than that I see no real market for the Ataribox.
