Sun Enhances Solaris Developer Edition, Adds Support
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

Seeking to make it easier for developers to use Solaris instead of Linux or Windows for their primary workstation environment, Sun Microsystems and the contributors to the OpenSolaris project continue to tweak the Unix variant to get it up to snuff with other GUI-enabled operating systems. This week's Solaris Express Developer Edition 9/07 snapshot moves Sun another couple of yards closer to its goal. READ MORE >

Sun Ships Intel-Based Galaxy Rack Servers
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

Seven months after inking a joint development and OEM agreement with Intel, the engineers at Sun Microsystems have put out a second-generation of 'Galaxy' X64-based servers that make use of the latest quad-core Xeon processors from Intel.

IDF Server Wrap Up: Intel to Keep the Pressure on AMD
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

Chip maker Intel has finished up its fall Intel Developer Forum technical conference in San Francisco, and the company last week made it pretty clear that it is going to keep tweaking and improving its server processors and platforms at the aggressive pace that has allowed it to blunt the competitive attack from Advanced Micro Devices. AMD's quad-core 'Barcelona' Opteron chips using a 65 nanometer process are just starting to ship in systems, and Intel is already gearing up improved dual-core and quad-core chips based on the 'Penryn' core and a new 45 nanometer process.
