"Hewlett-Packard is planning a rollout of Linux workstations that will begin with two Intel-based models this autumn and continue with workstations using the company's PA-RISC processors next spring."

"The Visualize PL450 and XL550 will be HP's first Unix workstations on the relatively cheap Intel platform."

"The two machines, which will be the only Intel-based systems in a range otherwise dominated by systems based on PA-RISC, are intended for engineering and scientific work. Customer interest sparked the decision to install Linux on workstations, said Jim Campbell, technical workstation manager."
