A German news site seems to be reporting that VA Linux is working on a dual Athlon server with AMD. We asked regular Linux Today reader Fred Mobach to translate from the original German text, and here's what he reports:

"I would like to stress the text '... with the new Dual-Athlon was showed by AMD with an one-unit high servermodule from VA Linux'."

"It says exactly that AMD showed a VA Linux server with two Athlon CPU's. So this has been showed by AMD. But it says also 'But VA Linux offers these CPU's only in the 900 MHz range'. Which says that VA Linux is really involved."

"This is exactly what the German text reads."

"Not exactly what I think is clear reporting of the exact facts. It's a bit unclear as if AMD and VA Linux are showing a prototype product from their cooperative labor."
