INQ: ONE OF the interesting hardware stories is a series of boxes running as-yet-unannounced dual-core Opteron processors, writes INQ reader Don Altman, from LinuxWorld. The vendors I saw displaying working systems using these included Cray, HP, Microway, and Sun. Below I'll try to describe a few of the boxes.

HP's contribution was the XW9300 mini-tower running dual Opteron 200-series chips with the ability to run dual-core chips with only a BIOS upgrade.. The motherboard is made by Tyan to an HP design. The box uses 800MHz Hypertransport through the 250 processors and 1GHz for the 252. The as-yet-unannounced dual-core chips were rumoured to be running 1GHz Hypertransport

When Sun's Scott McNealy told us that Red Hat had the Linux market, we decided it might be a good idea to find out what Novell and Mandrakesoft had to say about that. We exchanged email with Mandrakesoft CEO Fran?žois Bancilhon and Novell's director of product management and marketing, Charlie Ungashick, on the subject of Solaris 10, Red Hat, and how they compete in a consolidating market.

NX protection seems great; it stops viruses dead in their tracks and eliminates those pesky buffer overflows we have been hearing so much about for the last 15 years. Well, maybe not. In fact it seems that NX provides several layers of false security, particularly since it only stops some buffer overflows and whether or not it stops any viruses has yet to be seen yet.

The year of the penguin, some people hailed 2004 at the turn of the year. And in many ways it was. Was it because the march on the server space continued at a relentless pace? Because there were big announcements around desktop installments? Because there was finally some realistic perspective about the threat from SCO, or the threat to Microsoft? However you look at it, the penguin's tux has never looked more pristine or ready for business. So here we'll take a stroll though the last 12 months that sharpened the creases and quickened the pace of the Linux-based platforms.

Following two months after the release of the 2.6.9 Zonked Quokka Linux kernel [story], Linux creator Linus Torvalds released Woozy Numbat, the 2.6.10 kernel. He summarizes:

"Ok, with a lot of people taking an xmas break, here's something to play with over the holidays (not to mention an excuse for me to get into the Glögg for real ;)

"Mostly a lot of small fixes since 2.6.10-rc3, with the biggest thing being probably the CIFS update and the switch-over to the new DVB frontend driver world order. Some MMC and USB work too, and ARM updates as usual."

Further information can be found in the release announcements for 2.6.10-rc1 [story], 2.6.10-rc2 [story], and 2.6.10-rc3 [story], as well as in the complete changelog. The latest version of the kernel can be downloaded from your nearest kernel.org mirror. Read on for the list of changes since 2.6.10-rc3

Mac enthusiast sites hosted on Linux include MacDailyNews, MacWorld and MacCentral. Running on FreeBSD are MacintoshOS, MacMinute and the entire Mac News Network group of sites, including MacSurfer, Apple Insider, Mac Observer and the MacNN main site.
