Intel has revealed further details of its ease of use designs for PC, codenamed Yaquina and Twister.

Gelsinger also revealed that Intel is ramping up its Linux work and is extending its Intel Developer Forum programmes. Its next IDF, in February next year, will include information on Linux for servers, as well as extend its initiatives on security and mobile connectivity. In September next year, it will give more details of its IA64 architecture, and also outline its Next Gen Server I/O, which is intended to replace PCI. He said that the Next Gen IO, which has caused controversy because IBM, Compaq and HP are all eager to develop PCIX, would have a modular rather than a monolithic approach, would be non-proprietary, and would be channel-based, rather than memory mapped. Intel is spearheading the digital transmission content protection (DTCP) system, intended to prevent copyright breaches across the Web, and Gelsinger said that the 5C DTCP specification is already available. ®
