Intel Likes Napster

from the well-of-course-it-does dept

Intel has decided that peer-to-peer is a good thing and are going to work to support it. This is not a huge surprise. One of the bigger threats to Intel’s core business (and trust me, they’re always thinking about their core business) is what happens if all the muscle is on the server, and the clients become dumb and just need a the most basic, cheapest hardware. However, by moving back towards peer-to-peer it requires end users to have more powerful machines on their desktops, requiring better chips, and keeping Intel happily churning out processors. Simple.
