Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Not content with winning the 1999 Formula 1 World Championship and reducing Microsoft to a mere shadow of its former self, Linus Torvalds now has his sights set firmly on putting Intel out of business. Torvalds, along with the terribly rich financier George Soros and the even terribly richer Paul Allen of Microsoft, will unveil Transmeta's new Crusoe CPU in California later today. According to Transmeta's Web site, it has "re-thought the microprocessor to create a whole new world of mobility" -- so it'll have wheels, then. Is the market ready for a freeware CPU? It's all very well for a network of nerds to constantly 'improve' an operating system which is only used by nerds, but would you trust a PC powered by a nerd-designed chip? Torvald's lachrymose identical twin, Mika Hakkinen, was unavailable for comment at press time. ®
