"Former Compaq executives are staffing and funding a startup server maker that will use Transmeta microprocessors and the Linux operating system."

"Different from internet servers made by Compaq and Dell, sources say RLX Technologies' servers, code-named ICE, are being designed around Transmeta's Crusoe processors and will run a version of the Linux operating system. The startup claims that its machines pack eight times as much processing power into the same space as Intel-based rack servers from companies like Compaq, while using a quarter of the power."

"In addition to RLX, at least three other companies will release servers based on the Crusoe processors this year - Amphus, FiberCycle Networks and Rebel.com."
