The name of the new standard is ESA - Enthusiast System Architecture. Its goal is to provide information and control to enthusiasts not just for NVIDIA motherboards and video cards, but to provide that information and control for many other components in an ESA-enabled system. The actual protocol is OS independent. This is very important for the future of ESA, as it will eventually allow ESA to operate with any platform."

Terminology: nVidia ESA vs. IBM VM/ESA

IBM introduced the Enterprise System Architecture (ESA) in 1990. As far as I know, VM/ESA is a registered trademark, too. Can this similarity cause any problems to nVidia?
