rPath Creates Malleable, Serviceable Linux Distribution
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

The great thing about open source software is that it is so malleable. In the Linux space, you can grab a kernel, and bunch of systems and applications software, and throw it all together and make your own personal distribution. But, alas, if you do that, then you have to support it yourself. Your own knowledge of coding and projects has to be equivalent to that of a commercial Linux distributor, and you have to have time to keep your own system up to date. And if you have a problem, you have to rely on the kindness of colleagues and strangers. READ MORE >

Intel Goes After AMD with New Chip Architecture
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

As the semi-annual Intel Developer Forum kicked off last Tuesday, the head techies at the chip maker opened up the show by going through the new 'Core Microarchitecture' that will be at the heart the company's impending line of mobile, desktop, and server processors. And while Intel was loathe to invoke Advanced Micro Devices by name, its main rival was clearly in attendance and seen as the major driver for the changes Intel is forging into its chips.

Intel Gearing Up for Battle on the Server Front
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

Intel has been talking about its future dual-core server processors for so long now that it is hard to remember that many of them are not shipping yet and that rival Advanced Micro Devices has been able to use its competitive advantage in performance and thermals to capture quite a bit of market share. At the Intel Developer Forum last week in San Francisco, the company was talking up the future chips and platforms that it believes will put Intel back in the lead in 2006. READ MORE >

Transitive Gets Backing from Intel for Porting Product
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

About 18 months ago, an unknown software startup called Transitive launched a product called QuickTransit, which allows operating systems and applications that were designed for one computing architecture to be run, without changes, on another architecture. Last summer, Transitive broke onto the scene when Silicon Graphics chose it to support Irix Unix applications created for MIPS servers on its Linux-Itanium Altix machines, and then was made famous when Apple used QuickTransit at the heart of the Rosetta environment that allowed it to quickly move from PowerPC to Intel processors.
