"Intel executives will create a product triangle of sorts when the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) opens Feb. 15 in Palm Springs... participants are expected to hear Intel describe the Timna processor with integrated graphics; the next-generation 32-bit Willamette microarchitecture; and the Itanium 64-bit processor."
"The forum will include a 'software alley,' and [Intel Architecture Content Group general manager Dan] Russell said the Linux OS will be on display in many of the 19 kiosks there. Third-party software vendors will demonstrate tools and operating systems that will run on the Itanium processor, which is now in the sampling stage. The second stepping of the Itanium silicon will be described at IDF.
'Linux is becoming a key element in e-business and e-commerce,' Russell said, on both the IA-64 and IA-32 platforms."
