According to this story over at the Inquirer, Microsoft may be launching a series of low-end PCs with FIC and VIA.
The report claims that the first jointly developed "Dream PC" will be introduced towards the end of this month and that Microsoft will also show quite a few so called "baseline" or cheap machines which run with Via C3 600MHz chips and Windows XP.It might be called a "Dream PC", but it doesn't look like a power user's dream at all. Still, this isn't going to make Intel or AMD happy, nor will it sit well with low-end competitors like eMachines who may have cause to wave the anti-trust flag.
