Hardware Virtualization Technology

Speaker: Martyn Spink, Geraint North

Wednesday 29th November, 20:00

Martyn Spink and Geraint North will speak about Transitive 's Quick Transit® technology, which allows software compiled for one processor and operating system to run transparently on a different processor and operating system without recompilation or patching. The most famous use of this technology is probably Apple's Rosetta , which allows applications compiled for PowerPC Macs to run on the new Intel-based Macs. Martyn and Geraint will show this in action as well as demonstrating another use of the technology.
