"Project Trillian programme director Sri Chilkuri of VA Linux said that Linux's immediate availability on Itanium would give the operating system the opportunity to dominate the platform.
Ronald Curry, Intel's director of marketing, said: 'It's the first time source code is being made available before a processor is released.'
The move ensures that Linux keeps development pace with Solaris and Windows operating systems, which are also expected to be available for Itanium at its release. Intel is assisting in all three efforts, maintaining a neutrality between operating systems vying to run on its chip."
