Intel, Transmeta, Linus Torvalds in cahoots
Interesting, isn't it?
Intel Developer Forum A senior VP on the architecture front told The Register that Linus Torvalds, who now works for Transmeta, has worked for them in the past. But not only that. According to the source, Intel has already booted the Linux operating system on a gate level. "We're very far along with the Linux discussions. There are very few people, however, who are export enough to port it." Said Stephen Smith, architecture chief of the Merced programme: "We know Linus, we work with him and we've worked with him before. We have something to announce very shortly." The source told The Register that our story about Microsoft developers and Intel developers falling out was not completely true. But he did say there was much more than a grain of truth in it. ®
