"Today, Hewlett-Packard releases its toolkit for developers looking to run Linux applications on the next generation Intel Architecture 64-bit Itanium processor."
"The toolkit includes an IA-64 simulator that lets developers use their existing 32-bit systems, such as Pentium II and III workstations, to test drive their IA-64 applications for Linux. The early availability of the tool kit is meant to encourage IA-64 applications. "Any programmer who wishes to may become an IA-64 developer" with the simulator rather than early availability being limited to narrow band of cooperating companies, as has sometimes been the case in the past, said Jason Maxman, Intel's IA-64 marketing manager."
