AMD and OpenSolaris -- Margaret Lewis of AMD

Right before CommunityOne I caught up with Margaret Lewis, based here in Austin, who is the director of Commercial software at AMD.  We chatted about AMD's support and commitment to OpenSolaris.

My interview with Margaret (9:10)  Listen (Mp3)   Listen (ogg)

Some of the topics we tackle:

  • AMD's commitment to Open Source.
  • How AMD is setting up dedicated software resources in their center in Germany to focus on optimizing AMD's chips for OpenSolaris and how they are putting back all the changes.
  • AMD's virtualization work with the Xen hypervisor and how that feeds into the work that OpenSolaris has been doing.
  • AMD's work with Java and Java tuning.
  • AMD's power down feature, "PowerNow!"
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.
