"Today the Trillian project team announced that the port of Linux to Intel's forthcoming IA-64 architecture is up and running on the Intel IA-64 software development environment."

"Formed earlier this year, the Trillian project includes Cygnus Solutions, Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Intel, SGI and VA Linux Systems and represents the first major effort by the server and workstation industry to support an Open Source project of this depth and scale. Other major contributors are expected to join the project. Additionally, the Trillian project will work closely with Linux distributors to ensure timely release of their offerings. Results of the project will become available online to the Open Source community within approximately six months, allowing software developers to develop applications for the Linux environment."
