Intel "Today's launch of the latest version of Intel's vPro platform is a much bigger deal than you might think, with implications for end users that extend far beyond the enterprise arena at which vPro is initially aimed. The 2007 version of vPro represents the culmination of two of Intel's most ambitious and important plans for the PC platform: the transformation of x86 into a fully virtualizable ISA complete with virtualized I/O, and the first fully-complete implementation of all the parts of Intel's controversial contribution to 'trusted computing' technology, formerly codenamed 'LaGrande' but now called Trusted Execution Technology. Let's take a look at the new vPro and what its new virtualization and 'trusted computing' capabilities mean for ordinary users."

Sparc are already open, isn't it? That haven't give us more cpus before, why would it now? Also it won't help that much with actually producing it I'm told.


Right now it is now being aimed at niches; so far there are have been a couple of networking and I think a printer company who have signed up for it.

Ultimately what is required is a champion - an Intel sized company, or even something like VIA, who are willing to embrace the chip.
