I only interviewed him one time when we were a co-sponsor of WinHEC. He rocked in his chair the whole time with Carl Stork sitting nearby. I asked a bunch of questions he pretty much dismissed or answered by pouring out a gallon of meaningless techno-speak. I figured it must be a polite technique or habit he developed from a bazillion boring interviews. Somewhere in there I got some flake of a scoop about WinPad (big deal it never shipped!) And he was gone. Whatever wrongs you may or may not have done in antitrust, you are making up for them in spades now. Go for it, Bill!

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
