XYZ Computing posted up an article talking about Microsoft's mishaps with Vista, Xbox 360 and Office, as a reason for Linux to take more of the desktop OS market. Not sure what the big problems with Vista are, other than the short release delay, and what Xbox or Office have to do with the OS Market. Looks to me like an anti-microsoft rant from an open source user. What do you all think about Vista or this article? Feel free to comment and discuss this in our forums.  With Microsoft taking a beating because of Vista's problems and delays, it is time for desktop Linux to step up and experience some considerable growth.

DigiTimes reports that AMD is delaying the launch of their Turion 64 X2 mobile processor by roughly a month. Fortunately, the delay does not seem to be hardware related and is instead credited to Microsoft's latest delay with its upcoming Vista operating system. With Intel's Santa Rosa platform on the horizon, the Turion 64 X2 processor will certainly be critical to AMD's chances of gathering market share in the mobile segment. AMD has postponed the launch of the Turion 64 X2, its first 64-bit dual-core processor for notebooks, to June 2006, instead of May 9 as originally planned, sources at Taiwan notebook manufacturers indicated. The push back of the launch date was due... Read more...
Fudo over at The Inquirer reports that ATI's Radeon X1900 GTO which was slated to launch the end of this month has been delayed. With supply of the Radeon X1800 GTO which we reviewed diminishing in the channel, ATI needs this card to fill the price-point until they can launch the RV560 and RV570 GPUs. Unfortunately, we now know these GPU's are slightly delayed as well as they will not be made at 80u as planned and instead need to be transitioned over to a 90u process.  The X1900 GTO is even more expensive to produce, but it is meant to hold its space until the new golden kids named RV560 and RV570 come to market. ATI simply wants to shake up Nvidia's mainstream... Read more...
Apparently, yields on the new 80u process at TSMC still need major improvement as DigiTimes reports that ATI has reportedly chosen to cancel all plans to use this process this year. Both RV560 and R570 will now be produced on the more mature 90u process this year, though no plans are known for the entry level RV505 and RV535 which were also slated to be made at 80u. Time will tell what sort of impact the lack of the 80u process will have upon the overall design, power consumption, and frequencies these GPU's will have. With Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) not being able to improve yield rates on its 80nm manufacturing process, ATI Technologies will forego manufacturing... Read more...
Toshiba USA has said it will be delaying the launch of the first HD DVD players until April - a month later than planned. The official reason given is that it wants to synchronise the debut of the HD-A1 and HD-XA1 players with the release of a number of movie titles.At January's Consumer Electronics Show Toshiba said it would launch HD DVD in March. The new machines, to be priced at $500 and $800 respectively, will be much cheaper than the $1,000 starting price for the rival Blu-Ray format. Originally, the HD DVD format was due to be launched in the fourth quarter of last year. Toshiba is not giving a precise date for the launch of the HD DVD players. On 18 April, however, Time Warner's Warner... Read more...
Sony's much anticipated Playstation 3 has been pushed back to November 2006, which can be both good and bad news, depending on if you're a gamer or Bill Gates. The folks over at BFR, like many of us, aren't thrilled at the idea, and have to wonder if this is just the first in a series of delays. "Early this morning while most of us still lay asleep, on the other side of the globe industry shaking news was finally revealed about the ever elusive PS3. It has been nearly a year since 2005's E3 PS3 conference and with little to no further knowledge being disclosed to anyone about anything, we've been feeding off of "Target" Videos and Tech Demo's...

DigiTimes is claiming that their sources are indicating a pending delay for Intel's next generation Santa Rosa notebook platform. With initial indications showing a small delay into Q1 2006, it is somewhat surprising to hear that the shipping date is now rumored to fall somewhere in Q2 2006. Although no official word regarding the delay has come thus far, Intel has emphasized that the platform will ship in the first half of the year. The delay will affect Taiwan notebook makers' shipment plans for next year, which had already taken into consideration the new platform's launch, according to the sources.... Read more...
The Inquirer is reportedly hearing that AMD's next generation Socket M2 will be delayed by roughly a quarter. With rumors originally pointing to a Q1 launch around CeBIT, it is a bit alarming to now hear rumors pushing that timeline back significantly. Would a slip in the schedule for this new socket be enough to slow AMD's momentum as of late? Unfortunately, we'll have to exercise patience and wait and see. Then all of a sudden, we heard September, a big oopsie in the chips world, a 2Q slip. That was the story for about a week, late Q3. Soon after, a bunch more people said it was not late Q3, but early Q3, July or so to be exact. Moral of the... Read more...
The Inquirer reports that they are receiving word that ATI's upcoming RD580 Crossfire chipset will be slightly delayed until late February or early March. Based on a new Xpress 3200 chipset, RD580 should provide a healthy increase in performance as well as address several of the shortfalls of ATI's previous chipsets. For those looking to mate a new R580 GPU to a new RD580 chipset, it appears as though you have a slight wait ahead of you. Fortunately, the performance should make that slight inconvenience well worth the wait. In the meantime, ATI recommends using Asus' Crossfire motherboard, based on the RD480 chipset as this one is stable and... Read more...
Sampling Intel's 65nm dual-core Presler processors has revealed some stability problems, according to unspecified motherboard makers, adding that the problematic CPUs include the 2.8GHz 920 and 3.0GHz 930 series. Launch of end products based on the Intel Presler core may be pushed back from the January 2006 date originally scheduled by system vendors, the makers noted. ... Read more...
