Remote control for virtualized desktops

NEC Japan has started using AMD K6-2 chips only a few weeks after Toshiba said it would start using the microprocessors. AMD is now boasting eight out of the top ten PC OEMs as its customers. This is possibly stretching it a bit as it counts Packard Bell separately from NEC when they aren't, really. The other OEMs in the AMD stable are IBM, Compaq, Toshiba, HP, Acer and Fujitsu. The list of OEMs using Sharptooth should be an interesting one. If anyone has such a list, please send it to us and we'll publish it. ®
