"On deadline and with a minimum of fuss, the all-star Trillian team delivers Itanium Linux beta code to the faithful."

"Intel's 64-bit Itanium chip is still months way, but the Trillian open-source consortium will have its native Itanium Linux ready to roll the second it comes off the fabricator line."

"The Trillian project on Wednesday released its code to the open-source community."

"Given that Itanium is a server-class chip, Trillian Linux will include facilities for clustering, SMP, large memory, large file systems and performance monitoring. 64-bit Linux will be enterprise-ready Linux from the get-go, claim the Trillian companies..."

"Users will not be stuck with 32-bit tools in a 64-bit operating-system world. Instead, almost all major software programs -- from development tools such as Java, Perl and Python, to enterprise applications like Apache, Samba and SendMail -- are either already ported to Trillian or are far advanced on their road towards 64-bit application status."
