The SuperMicro 5014C-MT vs the 5013C-MT. The first difference is the change of processor socket. The new 5014C-MT uses the LGA775 socket, the other difference that is seen directly is the change to Broadcom NICS instead of the Intel they used to have. Well this should be no problem, only changing from e1000 to tg3 drivers in the Linux kernel for this box should suffice. (more)
New Jennifer Garner Wallpaper
UPDATE 13-02-2006: I have '''''created'''' 2 new wallpapers. One for the 2560x1024 dualhead desktop, and one for the 1024x768 wallpaper. You can get them here:
2560x1024 Dualhead Wallpaper - Jennifer Garner
1024x768 Wallpaper - Jennifer Garner
Now my desktop is exclusively powered by Jennifer Garner. I got really bored of the Heidi Klum wallpaper. And as I'm currently such a fan of Jennifer Garner I could only let her be my wallpaper gal :)
Microsoft's xBox 360 and PowerPC
- Microsoft is going to revive it's NT4 PowerPC version (unlikely)
- Microsoft is going to port Windows (again) to PowerPC (likely) and will make a version that will run on Mac's (probable but unlikely)
- Microsoft is going to build an entire new OS for the new xbox.
- Microsoft is going to use the knowledge they bought from Connextix to emulate x86 code on a PowerPC (VirtualPC for Mac)
- Microsoft Xbox 1 games aren't going to work anymore as they are all x86 code will this new platform has a powerpc code. Rumors: There
is going to be a higer end version of the Xbox 360 that will be
backward compatible concerning games (also see the VirtualPC note above)
- Game developers will have a harder time as porting games from the PC platform to the Xbox platform will be more work.
