According to this news story at ZDNet, Intel (makers of course of the Pentium processor and its successors) have taken a liking to the Napster model of file distribution (unlike the RIAA, who are rather exasperated by it) and want to create a similar program of their own. While no information on the name is forthcoming (and all our MGS name generator could come up with was "Makeshift Hedgehog"), there's speculation as to whether it'll actually get out into the open anyway, since peer-to-peer file transfer programs have taken such a battering lately. The purpose of the program is apparently to share things like home movies and other family multi media, but of course it will probably just degenerate into MP3s, warez and other illegal activities. Still, Intel never look a gift horse in the mouth.
