Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

As reported here many, many moons ago, Compaq is to ditch MIPS chips in favour of its newly acquired Digital Alpha platform. The news came formally at an announcement in Paris but senior executives at Compaq had made no secret whatsoever of their plans. The real news was that Compaq decided to issue a press release to tell the world something most interested people already knew. It is now possible that Compaq supremo Eckhard Pfeiffer will fulfil the next part of his agenda and tell Intel that unless it pays attention to its customers at the high end, it is possible that Merced may not be quite as important to the Houston-based PC company as it thought it might be.
