Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"Intel used its mobile chip launch this week to allay fears of
incompatibilities between Transmeta presentations and its own
demonstrations of mobile Notebook chips."
"Previously, spin engineers had encountered technical
difficulties in the demanding science of reproducing Transmeta
publicity point-by-point. But The Register was on hand at the
launch of five new mobile chips in San Francisco, and we can
confirm that the Intel has largely achieved compatibility with the
Transmeta instruction set."
"This tricky feat involves synchronising both PowerPoint slides
and real-time demonstrations of CPU voltage. It requires a clean
room environment in which the slightest trace of FUD can lay waste
to the entire presentation."
