Patent speed

"Why go to the bother of patenting a design if you then donate it to the community, we wonder."

If the patent was *granted* late last year, then it will have been submitted three or four years ago, at which point the idea of Open Compute was still a glimmer in Facebook's eye. So there's nothing very odd here.

(Disclaimer: I work for Intel, but not on this project).

Freudian typo?

"the impeding Solaris 11"? Is that what you mean, or, is it perhaps a Freudian typo for "the impending Solaris 11".

(Reminds me of the introduction to a VMS manual that read "Between you and the Vax is VMS" :-) )
