Based on the first words we can read during this scene, Neo is searching online papers for Morpheus. The first time we get a good look at the computer screen, we can read 'Searching...' as part of the used software, and the large header 'Global Search', before it scrolls to 'Morpheus eludes Police at Heathrow Airport'. The last entry we see has the caption '...

No, it simply means that he's going to be sick and/or pass out from the shock of what he has learned. As Jeff Bowman points out in the comments, it also subtly makes it clear to the audience that this is a common reaction to being told about the matrix, that Neo is far from the first person they've seen go through this. There are other examples of this, ...

Its slightly more than just he's going to puke. Neo just went through a profound, shocking and for him completely unfathomable situation he can barely process whats going on, his mind, as the kids say, has been blown Cypher, the depressing pessimistic person he is, said, "he's gonna pop" probably because he sees Neo literally rejecting reality, or not ...

The matrix script simply describes it as a search engine. The DARKNESS CRACKLES with phosphorescent energy, the word "searching" blazing in around us as we EMERGE FROM a computer screen. The screen flickers with windowing data as a search engine runs with a steady relentless rhythm. I would assume it was not a real bit of software but something ...

It's interesting to speculate about who he is, but I suspect there isn't any satisfying canonical answer (TLDR: I don't think he is a previous version of Morpheus). I'll approach this by first surveying the sources I'm aware of (my blind spot includes all of the games, and the handful of comics excluded from volumes 1 and 2) which might have context clues, ...

She got out. It doesn't matter. The informant is real. We have the name of their next target. The name is Neo. The agents know of Neo prior to Morpheus contacting him as Cypher has told them to prove himself as a spy. At the point the agents go for Neo in the office, Morpheus is not aware of this so doesn't know why they have come for ...

He's never named, but since he is an intentional feature of the Matrix introduced by the machines it almost doesn't matter. The quote is from Morpheus, who along with the rest of the human race has been heavily mislead by all of the machines, especially the Oracle. We have no way of knowing if the person mentioned even existed let alone what his name was.

It can only be assumed he's doing port scans to find computers with open ports so he can hack into them. Despite that fact that the film was released in 1999, due to the sets it's difficult to determine if the film is actually set in 1999. He appears to be using Nmap to port scan, and at one point Trinity is trying to get an exit and she is definitely ...

There's nothing to suggest that every single incarnation of Neo had the exact same experiences. The first Neo may have been tapped by the Architect or even the Oracle. When that Neo awakened fifty people from the power plant and they began freeing the first generation of human resistance, it's possible they left something behind that the machines wouldn't ...

Why was Neo let go? Because it's part of the plan. We know the Matrix is a system of control. We find out in The Matrix Reloaded (when Neo speaks to the Architect) that Zion, the resistance and the One are also part of the system of control (created by the Oracle) to account for the percentage who will not properly accept the programming of the Matrix. ...

The core of the answer here is that (to quote Jurassic Park) life always finds a way. Even if the machines destroy every single unplugged human, what stopping similar rebellions from happening in the future? Something as simple as a mechanical failure could release one (or more) humans from the Matrix, who then again start a new rebellion. This is why ...

Morpheus and team have extracted many others from the Matrix. They have a pattern. It appears that they first observe, then reach out, then meet within the Matrix, and finally the choice of the pill. Morpheus knows he's being hunted by the agents because of the "freeing" activities and his knowledge of the location of Zion. (It's later revealed in Reloaded ...

Neo was a well known hacker who engaged in numerous criminal enterprises, though his motivation did not appear to be wholly mercantile. Morpheus could reasonably have assumed the agents wanted Neo for those activities.

The One, as Morpheus mentions, lived way back in the past, was born inside the system, and had the power to change everything else and all that Morpheus described. But he died too. Neo or Agent Smith is not the one. The One is unnamed in The Matrix Trilogy. Now who is Agent Smith? He is just an agent who is ordered to look out for instability/anomaly in ...
