Microsoft Lifts Curtain Higher on Longhorn Server
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

Microsoft is hosting its Windows Hardware Engineering Conference in Seattle this week, and the top brass of the company are talking up the future roadmap for Windows products, including the future "Longhorn" kicker to Windows Server 2003. While the details were a little thin, Microsoft did clear up a few things.

by Timothy Prickett Morgan

Hewlett-Packard said at an HP user conference in Europe today that it would begin shipping mx2 dual Itanium processor modules in its Integrity server line in June, with Superdome shipments in July. The mx2 units plug two 64-bit "Madison" Itanium processors, some L4 cache memory, and a baby chipset into a single package that plugs into a single Madison processor slot, doubling the processor count in an Integrity server and allowing it to improve the bang for the buck in its servers.

Sun is trying to become a more aggressive software player, and Solaris (perhaps the crown jewel of the company) has been undersold. But this has just changed. READ MORE >


Mad Dog 21/21: Flea Circuits
by Hesh Wiener

A couple years ago, when Midge and Madge were still with us, Professor A.G. Gertsacov played Times Square with them. Midge and Madge were trained fleas, whose efforts may have inspired the semiconductor industry's chip monks, people who usually feel quite differently about bugs.
