Default Intel Developer Forum 2007: Day 2

Today we are going to talk about mobility. Mobile Penryn, Montevina platform, Silverthorne and more WiMAX (Echo Peak solution). Also we will touch upon the innovative features of the upcoming mobile platforms that will help increase battery life and lower the power without sacrificing the performance. Read more in our report from the IDF Mobility keynote!

Menlow is the "platform" (read: chipset + CPU), Silverthorne is the CPU, and the development on all of this started about three years ago. The goal was simple: reduce power, compared to Centrino, by 10x in order to make it into ultra small, ultra portable devices. Once the design had been finalized, it was clear that this chip could not only be used in UMPCs but also in things like consumer electronics devices and embedded systems.

Following this morning's mobility speak by Intel, Ian Murdock
took the stage in one of the small rooms at the Moscone Center West to
talk about the OpenSolaris Binary Distribution that is currently known
as Project Indiana. We captured all of the slides Ian had shown, and
while most of the information he shared was just reiterated from his
past talks, there was some interesting details worth sharing. Among the
advantages of Project Indiana is that it will use Sun's ZFS as the
default file-system, and Project Indiana will be taking full advantage
of its abilities to create snapshots and perform rollbacks if something
with the system's software goes wrong. With Sun's past work with the
GNOME project, GNOME will be the desktop environment in Project Indiana
said Ian Murdock. He had gone on to reiterate several other basic points
such as the single CD installation with network-based package management
(likely powered by apt). Project Indiana will also be easier to acquire,
as it will be available through mirrors that do not need registration
and will be distributed via Bit Torrent. Another goal of Ian's is also
to modernize the command line.
