"Rudd also confirmed that the Itanium launch date, according to
"the most recent Intel roadmap, is around the March timeframe."
"IBM's workstation will, as previously reported, run on the
64-bit version of the Windows 2000 OS, as well as on Linux and
IBM's own AIX 5L. The timeframe for this is expected to be: AIX 5L,
available on the Itanium launch date, Linux in Q2, and Windows in
Q3, according to Rudd."
"So it's going to be a bit of a strange environment. It's
unusual for the hardware to be there before the software."
"Rudd anticipates that IBM customer shipments in March, April
and May will be "on the limited side."
