"A barrage of announcements by Silicon Graphics, Inc. has unveiled a dizzying array of new applications and products for use on Linux."
"SGI has released its Intel compiler to the Open Source community, as well as introducing Intel processor-based workstations and a new family of graphics subsystems for use on Linux. The company is working toward "pushing Linux to the next level" with the compiler suite release, according to Jan Silverman, vice president of computer systems at SGI."
"SGI called the release of the Open Source compiler a continuation of its efforts "to establish Linux as a commercially viable platform." The compiler will support continuing Open Source development of high-performance IA-64 applications. "The continued optimization of these software tools will enable application developers to realize the potential of Intel's Itanium processor," said Ron Curry, director of marketing for Intel's IA-64 processor division."
