Remote control for virtualized desktops

Intel Developer Forum While Intel was polite about Sun's future participation in the Itanium programme this morning, behind the scenes we understand that senior execs at the chip giant are livid at Scott McNealy's firm. Paul Otellini, a senior VP at Intel US, said this morning that his company would continue with its contractual arrangements over Solaris on the Itanium platform. But behind the calm face, insiders at Intel were telling The Register a rather different story. Sun is and has been very lukewarm about porting Solaris to the Itanium (Merced) platform and wants whole-hearted participation in the programme. Sun's contribution to the party, however, has angered senior executives at Intel, who have seen other OS partners, including the Project Monterey folk, the Trillian people and Microsoft engage with Itanium in a committed fashion. So far, there seems to have been little or no response to the spat from Sun, but you can bet what's going on behind the scenes there, and at the corporate offices of NCR and Siemens, which were relying on Scott McNeally's firm to deliver solutions for them. It is a very unseemly row, isn't it? ® See also Solaris for Itanium looking dead flakey
