Seven Steps to Software Security

Poor old kicking Pat Gelsinger. Not only does he have to put up with the likes of The Register's very own Mike Magee at the Intel Developer Forum this week, but the uncreasingly awful ZDNet adds insult to injury by asserting that Pat is now of the female persuasion. Ace reporter Matthew Broersma writes today (only 72 hours late, but that's pretty good by ZZZZZZZZDNet's standards) about kicking Pat's speech at IDF last Tuesday where he revealed to an astonished audience that Intel recommended an extra 250MHz processing power was needed to run Windows 2000, so we'll all have to go out and buy a faster processor. Writes Broersma: "The combination would require "250 more megahertz", said Pat Gelsinger, vice president and general manager of Intel's Desktop Product Group, in a keynote speech Tuesday at the Intel Developer Forum in Palm Springs, California. She said the difference is due to data transfers around Intel's network, anti-virus software updates and checking, encryption and other network operations."
