"Support for Transmeta CPUs is quietly under development as part of Microsoft's next generation WinXP OS. Beta testers staring vacantly at the blue install screen while filenames flash by claim to have been jolted awake by the evocatively-named crusoe.dll."
"Microsoft's developers have helpfully tagged the file as a "processor device driver," so indeed it is that Crusoe that's being catered for. Presumably Microsoft reckons that going the extra mile in WinXP to support Crusoe's features specifically will come in handy for something when the OS actually ships."
