End of a brilliant Dream

This month, it is said, that the management of Transmeta finally decided to shut down. What a brilliant idea it was originally. The idea of this chip making company is to develop a mobile chip which can be upgraded via a browser. I first came to know about this company, when Linus Torvalds, (the founder of one of the greatest ideas of our time - Linux) joined this company. From there onwards, off & on I am have developed a liking for this company purely because of their "most original idea". But it is sadly proved that ideas alone wont make a business. Let me learn that from this brilliant yet sad debacle of this company. Good Bye Transmeta
