Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Chipzilla has alerted its distributor and dealer channel to a shortage of ZX and BX chipsets. In an email sent to its channel, the chip giant said: "Due to a worldwide chipset shortage on 440BX and 440ZX AGP sets, some Intel Branded Desktop Boards may have limited availability during the next few months. "All 440BX and 440ZX based desktop boards are in extremely strong demand. Some current orders and all new orders received from Intel authorized distributors may have longer than expected lead times." The mobos affected are the ® SE440BX-2, the SR440BX, BI440ZX, and the RC440BX, Intel confirmed. The shortage is obviously pretty serious, because Intel says the problem is affecting its entire customer base. A chance here, maybe, for its competitors to mop up business. ® See also Component shortages threaten mobo manufacture MP3 players mop up Flash supplies
