Transmeta News

Simon Janes wrote in with the following update on Transmeta, the mysterious company that nobody really knows exactly what they are doing, but the names of the people involved are amazing. Simon writes "Alexander Wolfe's "Wintel Watch" column ' Hot x86 chips for '98 and beyond' for EETIMES asserts that Transmeta is possibly working on a x86 alternative for low-power, multimedia, or network computing, or all of the above.

Wolfe is not ignorant of Transmeta's recent hire of Linus Torvalds and easily sees Linus's importance in the Unix community, giving Transmeta "a big leg up in any effort to design a processor tuned to handle real-world networked applications."
