Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

The great Satan of software fancies itself as a big noise on the Internet and as such is staking itself a hefty claim in the future. Anyone signing up for three year's connection to MSN will now be able to get a free PC from Microsoft. But according to Satan's spin doctors, this only applies if you're in the US. The software giant obviously feels the hardware that gets people online is just a medium through which ecommerce can take place. Three years on MSN - paid up front - comes to $647.64, according to the arithmetically superior news feed Reuters. That then gets you a Lan Plus PC, which apparently runs on a 400Mhz AMD chip. You don't get a monitor though - so this is one deal you can keep Stateside. Microsoft was one of a band of ISPs that recently started offering rebates on PCs bought by its subscribers. But after only one week of running a pilot of the scheme, Microsoft has decided it wasn't such a good idea after all. ®
