Glenn Fleishman writes “Apple has changed its license for Mac OS X Server 10.5 (Leopard Server) to allow virtualized instances. VMware and Parallels are poised to offer support. This probably presages a thoroughly overhauled Xserve product with greater capability for acting as a virtual machine server, too. ‘Ben Rudolph, Director of Corporate Communications for Parallels, told me, “Enabling Leopard Server to run in a virtual machine may take some time, but we’re working closely with Apple on it and will make it public as quickly as possible.” Pat Lee, Product Manager at VMware, concurred, saying “We applaud Apple for the exciting licensing changes implemented in Leopard Server. Apple customers can now run Mac OS X Server, Windows, Linux and other x86 operating systems simultaneously on Apple hardware so we are excited about the possibilities this change presents.” Although neither company committed to specific features or timetables, it appears as though we should be seeing virtualization products from both that will enable an Xserve to run multiple copies of Leopard Server in virtual machines.’”

AMD lost $396 million, or 71 cents a share, in the September quarter on revenues of $1.63 billion, up 18% sequentially and up 23% year-over-year. Its operating loss was $226 million. Those losses, better than last quarter when it lost $600 million, were nine cents heavier that Wall Street expected but revenues were $100 million better than figured too. AMD took a $120 million charge, accounting for 22 cents of the losses and attributed to its pricey $5.6 billion ATI acquisition, integration and severance charges and impairment of its Spansion assets. If you exclude the charges, it did better than it was supposed to.

Intel earned $1.9 billion in the third quarter or 31 cents a share, up 43% year-over-year, on record revenues of $10.1 billion, up 15% - way better than the $9.6 billion that Wall Street expected and way better than Intel had guided to. Its operating income was up 64% to $2.2 billion. Intel described it as its highest sequential growth in 10 years and said demand was ‘exceptional,’ a product of a ’strong general market.’ Nearly 80% of its revenues were generated outside the US. By comparison AMD lost 71 cents on revenues $1.6 billion.
