Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Our good friends over at Tom's Hardware have published the second part of an in-depth piece looking at the best platform for Intel's Coppermine chip. Written by Tom Pabst, part one looked at Intel's 820 chipset and VIA's Apollo Pro 133A. Chipzilla took it on the chin and VIA came out on top. Now in part two of the piece, Doctor Tom looks at Intel's 440BX chipset at 133MHz FSB, the i840 chipset, and PC-600 and PC-700 RDRAM. The piece concludes that: "BX at 133 is not only one of the cheapest, but certainly the fastest solution for Intel's Coppermine." Doctor Tom advises against this route unless you're feeling sure of yourself. If you want the sensible option, the good doctor's advice is to go for VIA's Apollo Pro 133A. But yah-boo-sucks, Intel – both the 820 and 840 get a proper thumbs-down. ® You can find the full article here.
