Intel Bites the Bullet: Xeon Gets 64-Bit Support
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

The conspiracy theorists are not always wrong. The future Xeon workstation and server processors from Intel that are based on the new "Prescott" core that was announced a few weeks ago do indeed have 64-bit memory extensions in them. With the launch of 64-bit Xeons, which will roll out in the next several months, server strategies based on Itanium and Opteron are put into a new light, if not called directly into question.

Intel Draws More Lines on Xeon, Itanium Roadmaps
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

The beginning of Intel Developer Forum is always about the big ideas that set the themes for the show and generally chart the course for where Intel wants to take the IT industry (or where Intel think the IT industry is going to take it). Day two is about the giving a little more detail--but just enough to whet the appetite. And last week, Mike Fister, general manager of Intel's Enterprise Platforms Group, said just enough about its Xeon and Itanium processor plans for the next two years to make its systems partners hungry without telling them everything that is on the menu.

VMware Tweaks GSX Server with Version 3
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

The VMware unit of disk array maker EMC this week announced enhancements to its operating system virtualization software for 32-bit X86 platforms, GSX Server 3. Soon-to-be rival Microsoft is apparently slipping as it tries to bring Virtual Server 2004 to market, so VMware has a bit of breathing space in a virtualization market it pretty much owns. That said, VMware is going to have to innovate like crazy to keep from being crushed by the onslaught of the Microsoft marketing machine. READ MORE >


Mad Dog 21/21: A Lion in the Sand
by Hesh Wiener

In November 2001, a team of French archeologists found the bones of a mummified lion in the Egyptian tomb of Maia, who had been the wet nurse of the pharaoh Tutankhamun, popularly known as King Tut. They believe the big cat was interred along with the little nurse about 1430 B.C. At first, they didn't let the cat out of the bag. But shortly after New Year's Day, at almost the precise moment Microsoft announced it was going to preserve support for Windows 98 for far longer than previously declared, the Egyptologists published their discovery in Nature.
