Intel has sped up development of its Vanderpool technology that allows users to run two operating systems on a single computer, reports vnunet.com. Consumers can expect to later this year run two systems with all the spyware and applications that go with it on a single processor.
Vanderpool allows for greater system performance with only a limited increase in power consumption. Similar virtualisation technologies have been available for the server market for a while, where they allow enterprise customers to consolidate. But I fail to see the need for computer consolidation on my desk at home. Unless of course Intel exepects us to start running media servers on our home computers by this year's end.
