"The effort to port Linux to Intel Corp.'s IA-64 platform got its first public showing at LinuxWorld here last week, as members of Trillian, the mini-consortium charged with making Linux work with IA-64, showed their kernel booting on a Merced simulator.
The informal session had project participants answering questions about their progress while an understandably slow Merced simulator booted up and executed simple commands. The first public peek at Linux for Merced had come earlier that morning in Intel Corp.'s keynote speech. Senior vice president Sean Maloney, aided by chairman Andy Grove, offered just a glimpse of the Linux screen and announced that the IA-64 Linux code would be made publicly available in the first quarter of 2000."
"...Trillian members are optimistic they will have Linux available for the earliest runs of Merced machines."
