So, finally, the new guadalinex is going to be made by emergya, the company I worked for last year.

It”s going to be made in association with some other companies: Yaco, Interactors and, also, Canonical, the creators of the Ubuntu linux distribution, on which the new guadalinex is going to be based on.

Good luck to them!

Apple and Oranges

Filed under: Mac — Tags: , — jesus @ 14:02

On slashdot there is an interesting story about apple considering using intel chips. including links from people who predicted this.

It’s interesting to think about it for a while and the effect it would have, even on all the apple lovers.

If somebody thinks this way apple would be a PC maker, this is highly unlikely, as some readers on slashdot point out. The thing is that a PC is not only a processor, but also an architecture. So, if apple simply removes the north bridge and uses an improved version or a similar IC, it would not be compatible at all with X86, as well as removing that back compatibility crap x86 has been perpetuating for so long. On the other hand, they could use a VLIW architecture, as in the itanium chip, and so, again it would be incompatible with the X86 market, but not on Linux (I guess).

Anyway, let’s’ see what’s apple next move
