Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Intel duly rolled out its IA64 investment fund late last night, and pulled in a brace of PC vendors to back up its plans. Its European wing held a conference call a few minutes ago. PC partners include HP, Dell, NEC, SGI and Compaq, while corporate partners in the fund include Smith Klein Beecham, Reuters, Sumitomo and the Bank of America. Intel is contributing $100 million to the fund, but European marketing executive Nigel Grierson said the amount of money the individual PC vendors are contributing is a private matter. The fund does not require participants to develop for Merced, said Grierson. "The fund is interested in participating companies for 64-bit applications -- there is no specific focus on Merced or McKinley". He refused to comment on whether HP will move directly to McKinley -- although that company has confirmed that is exactly what it will do. What Compaq will do, given its Alpha focus, is totally unclear. So that's that, then. ®
