Microsoft Said It Was Lifting Its Bar on Virtualization
SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2 will connect and integrate with Vista and Office 2007

SQL Server SP2 Out
Microsoft released SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2 on Monday, saying the thing will connect and integrate with Vista and Office 2007. Microsoft also said it was lifting its bar on virtualization and letting licenses of the Enterprise Edition of SQL Server 2005 run an unlimited number of virtual instances.

Dell Reaches Out to Users
Well, it's not called a complaints department but Dell has set up two sites where customers reportedly stand a chance of being heard: www.dellideastorm.com and www.studiodell.com. The first is supposed to be an online community about building products and designing services and the second about sharing videos à la YouTube about how customers are using Dell widgetry.

Cool and Uncool
AMD has introduced two new 65nm Athlon 64 single-core desktop processors that run at 45W, dubbed the 3500+ and 3800+ that run $88 and $93 respectively in 1,000-unit lots. It also introduced a 90nm 3GHz Athlon 64 X2 6000+ that runs at a blistering 125W.

Intel Fights AMD in China
Lenovo's profits and its gross margin are getting a $100 million-a-year boost thanks to the incentive payments it's getting from Intel to use Intel chips, according to what Forbes says, quoting an unnamed source, and AMD owes a lot of its market share gains in Asia to Lenovo, the first Asian company to use its alternate chips. A year ago, Forbes observes, Lenovo was using half Intel, half AMD. Lenovo reportedly got a $22 million check from Intel in the December quarter.

Spy Fallout
Calpers and Calstra, two of the biggest US pension funds, want HP to let shareholders nominate candidates for its board and urge their fellow shareholders to support the post-HP spying caper, adult supervision proposition. HP has so far resisted such a notion.

VCs Have Put $1b in Blade.org Members
IBM's year-old Blade.org claims that 50-odd VCs have put over a billion dollars in its members over the last two years. The organization has almost a hundred members, up from the original eight. The blades business is projected to hit $11 billion by 2010 according to IDC.

Rollins Gets $5m To Go Away
Dell is paying its ex-CEO Kevin Rollins $5 million not to work there. That's what he's getting in severance paid out in five equal installments between this May 4 and mid-April of '08 plus his $90 million option cache of course. There's a 12-month non-compete and a no-badmouthing agreement. Rollins is still officially working for Dell as an advisor and drawing his million-dollar-a-year regular salary until May 4.

Egenera Gets Patent
Egenera has gotten a patent for something called "Address resolution protocol system and method in a virtual network" that in conventional Ethernet networks associates server and application IP addresses with their Ethernet addresses. Egenera's widgetry obviates the need to convert Ethernet addresses into virtual circuit numbers whenever traffic is sent by combining the virtual circuit table with the ARP table thereby lowering latency and processing overhead. It's patent number 7,174,390.

Cheetah in Open Beta
IBM has gone into public beta with Cheetah, the next go-round of the Informix database. IBM and Novell are eventually supposed to put out a Linux version of the thing for SMEs using AMD 1000-based xSeries 3105 boxes.
