Transmeta: a highly secretive California firm working on a microprocessor that will emulate many microprocessors, though its main target seems to be Intel's Pentium. It is claimed the Transmeta chip is faster than a Pentium Pro, but with only 1/4 the components. Ironically, the secretive Transmeta employs Linus Torvalds, creator of the open and free Linux OS.
