@ alok:
Good point. I agree with you that its not gone revolutionize VoIP. However, iam excited about intel adding the VoIP capability to all its chip, which is a big deal for VoIP. The way i see this is, all intel chips shall be shipped with VoIP software that consumers can use to make voice calls to any destination- landline or mobile.
