SJ Mercury/AP: Gateway boosts chipmaker TransmetaMay 30, 2000, 22:03 (0 Talkback[s])
"Gateway Inc. has chosen upstart chipmaker Transmeta to power two new devices for Internet access, dealing a blow to the combined rule of Intel Corp. and Microsoft Corp. in personal computing."
"The San Diego, Calif.-based computer manufacturer also said Tuesday it will use a version of the Linux operating system developed by Transmeta in the devices, the first of which should be on sale this holiday season."
"A Transmeta-Linux combination offers consumers an alternative to the combination of computers with Intel processors running on Microsoft's Windows operating system, analysts said."
