Cell processors?
[via Paul Thurrott]

For folks that like to ruminate on where things might head, Paul Murphy of Linux Insider has written three interesting articles related to the upcoming Sony/IBM Cell processor for the Playstation 3. The first article describes the processor itself, along with speculation that some form of Linux will be the OS for Cell derived machines. The second article speculates that Linux developers will adopt Cell based machines in droves. The final article discusses (as usual) the dire consequences for Apple -- Murphy has a conspiracy theory to explain why Cell is bad for Apple.

I know a lot of people who would plunk down $250 (the price of a PS2) for a low/no maintenance box that could run Mozilla/Firefox/Thunderbird, do their taxes, balance their checkbooks, and play cool games. I don't know if Cell is it or not, but somebody will probably do this in the next 2 years.

Come see us on Bainbridge
Julie decided she wanted to have a blogger get together here on the Island. It's on July 17th, a week from Saturday (today). Check out the post on her blog for details. One note: the area where we plan to meet is highly walkable from the ferry. If you are coming from Seattle, you should plan to leave your car on the Seattle side and just walk on. Walking on is a much more pleasurable experience than driving on, and you won't have to hassle with your car once you get here.
