"Analysts are warning that the release of the Crusoe chip, a Linux based smart processor, may not lead to the dawn of a technological new age...."

"But if it turns out that the software is full of bugs, then it could be the shortest lived 'great white hope' in history," Longbottom warned...."

"Weiss added that until products hit the streets, it is too soon to tell whether Crusoe will have a significant impact on the market. "Transmeta is busy using the word revolutionary to describe their product, but we really only have their word for it.
