Intel and OpenSolaris -- Dave Stewart of Intel

Before the OpenSolaris launch I did an interview with Dave Stewart, the head of Intel's "Team Solaris."  Last week I got to meet him in person and snapped the pic below. 

Take a listen to hear what Dave and the team have been up to (they've been busy :).

Some of the topics we tackle:

  • Intel's "Team OpenSolaris" in China and the US.
  • What Dave thinks are the coolest parts of OpenSolaris.
  • Where Intel has made most of its OpenSolaris contributions.
  • Project Tesla and Intel's effort with PowerTOP for OpenSolaris.
  • Whats coming up later this year and how Dave and co. are working to get their next family of chips, Nehalem to work really well with OpenSolaris.

My Presentation at Linux World SF

Although I did an entry several weeks ago about Linux World SF, I'm finally getting around to posting the presentation I gave there in the Intel booth.  The presentation, imaginatively entitled "Sun and GNU/Linux,"  gives a quick overview of  Sun's involvement with Linux. 

I start with the value of sharing and discuss how Sun has contributed significantly to the GNU/Linux operating system and how we are involved in the community.  From there I talk about how over the last several years, recognizing the need to provide its customers with choice, Sun has become a serious Linux supplier (even Gartner agrees, see pg3).  I then end with what Sun and Intel have started doing together around Linux on both the hardware and software side. 

Its a bit of  a whirlwind tour but it hits the high points :)

Off to Linux World SF

In a couple of hours my flight leaves to San Francisco and Linux World

Rather than having a Sun booth at Linux World, we are working through our partners, AMD and Intel who have been gracious enough to host us in their booths.  Kuldip will be in the AMD area showing off Sun Studio 12 -- our complete set of compilers and tools for Solaris and GNU/Linux.   I will be across the show floor in the Intel booth presenting Sun's GNU/Linux strategy and describing how we are working with Intel.  

If you're at the show and want to check out my preso, come to the Intel booth (#1108) Wednesday at 2:00PM.

Im also taking another mic to the show and hope to grab some more interviews while Im there.

Pau for now... 

About

I look after Sun's relationships with the various GNU/Linux communities as well as our relationship with the FSF. Last year, my family and I emigrated from Silicon Valley to Austin, TX.
