>RE: NY Linux Users Grp. Invited to the AMD Opteron Anniversary Party
> Note the reservation is due Friday 16th, tommorrow
>Advance Micro Devices' (AMD) Opteron processor has been available for
>o-n-e year, during this period its vast 64-bit power, its rare
>to the PC
>world non-execute memory bit security feature (part of the AMD64
>extension to the old x86 instruction set) continues to please, provide
>much better results, and continue to gather new adherents in the free
>software, business, and user communities.
>Linux, the *BSDs, and other operating systems support the 64-bit
>Opteron. Note how AMD's approach is exceptional in that it allows users
>to continue with their 32-bit computing whilst migrating at their
>leisure to the better world of pure 64-bit computing. Have
>your cake and
>eat it too.
>Some of you already know these facts, but further, others
>might not have
>made, yet, the realization there is Sparc/Sun replacement
>written on the
>Opteron for a great many of you. That means a healthier bottom line to
>you, pay attention managers.
>Moreover, AMD has a sterling reputation in technical documenting its
>processors to free software developers, thus making the most of the
>chip's goodies available to you, and me. An enlightened company, much
>worthy of our support!
>In the past Advance Micro Devices has been very kind in supporting the
>New York Linux Users Group (NYLUG.org), and we in turn have been not
>selfish but self served by our affiliation. We have made great contacts
>with a great engineering company, have been a bridge to the free
>software world for AMD and have access to a great CPU chip for our
>servers and desktops. But to top it off AMD is treating the whole NYLUG
>usership to a free event at the famous Rainbow Room, atop Rockefeller
>Center. These AMD boys and girls rock hard. 8)
