Friday, March 3, 2000: LinuxWar: Distribution Wars III

I've updated my Distribution Wars article; it now compares RedHat 6.1, Mandrake 6.1, Caldera 2.3 and SuSE 6.3!

Another new press release for you: AMD Annoounces Flash memory agreement with CISCO.

Two new press releases for you: (1) AMD wins eight awards at CeBIT, and (2) iWill releases a UDMA raid card.

Huge price drops on processors this week; you can read all about it in the newest release of the Athlon/Pentium3 Price Comparison!

I also posted a TON more news from other fine sites below....

Corel sent me a press release about their bundling deal with hardware from TheLinuxStore.com.

VIA's Donald Eubank was kind enough to answer the questions I sent to him, and I speculate on what core frequencies will be used with the Cyrix III processor... See VIA's Joshua: Born Again Cyrix III.

VIA launched the Joshua processor on Monday - I am really looking forward to testing one!

Athlon 1GHz: Running Linux - admit it; you KNEW I would not be able to resist trying Linux on the 1GHz Sys Cold Fusion box... now you can read the results of my experiments!

For your reading pleasure: 1GHz Athlon Review (Part 2 - Synthetic Benchmarks) - Sys was kind enough to lend me a KryoTech based "Sys Cold Fusion 1000" system; and I've continued torture testing it.

[In case you are wondering; the "pop-behind" windows is an advertising campaign for this month by a new sponsor.]

I've gathered over 19,000 signatures so far on the Celeron SMP Petition - have you signed it yet?

Hilbert from Guru3D wrote: "We've just finished up an overview/pictorial on our visit to the CeBIT 2000 in Hannover. The CeBIT is one of the world's biggest IT exhibits. We've tried to visit an gather as much 3D related information as possible. Included in the overview is a visit to 3dfx with pictures of the new Voodoo 5 5000."

BuyBuddy has a "More Bang For Your Buck: March Roundup" article.

Mark wrote: "Our official forum of Fast-Mhz is up. Post what you think about our reviews, news, articles or whatever is on your mind."

DeezTech is giving away a bunch of hardware... they write: "All people have to do is sign up with our on-line forums and they will be automatically entered in our giveaway."

HardwareCentral has an Evergreen Performa 500 CPU Upgrade review.

ZDNet's Richard Barry reports on AMD's Jerry Sanders discussing his company's future processor strategy, its continuing battles with Intel and dreams of seeing his processors in the corporate environment.

John from GlideUnderground wrote: "have you ever wondered what 3dfxs official attitude is towards Glide Wrappers, now that Glide has gone Open-Source ? Naturally, we at Glide Underground were very interested in this matter and my fellow staffer Michael Ahlf sent them an eMail with some questions. Brian Busby of 3dfx took the time to give us some interesting answers in this short yet worthwhile interview."

Evil Avatar has a couple of game reviews: Demise: Rise of the Ku'Tan and Maxis' newest Sim Game, The Sims.

Julio writes: "optimize your system memory. Here @ 3D Spotlight we have got a guide for tweaking and getting the most of it..."

Glide Underground has a new glide wrapper, Open Glide .05A.
