Intel Quietly Releases 'Montvale' Itanium Kickers
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

It is hard to say why, but the launch of the 'Montvale' Itanium 9100 kickers to the current dual-core 'Montecito' Itanium 9000 processors could go down as the least enthusiastic launch that Intel has ever done for a microprocessor.

Cray Revamps Supercomputers with XT5 Designs
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

Supercomputer maker Cray moves one step closer to its long-term goal of converging its various high performance computing machines today with the launch of the Linux-based XT5 family of machines.

Mandriva in a Tizzy after Microsoft Trumps Linux in Nigeria
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

It is tough to compete with a monopoly under the best of circumstances, not because the odds are stacked against you, but because the money is. And that can be frustrating, which explains why Francois Bancilhon, the chief executive officer at commercial Linux distributor Mandriva, hammered out a somewhat hostile and probably hastily written open letter to Microsoft's chief executive officer, Steve Ballmer, after Microsoft was able to get in on a big Linux deal in Nigeria last week.
