"Intel's Itanium chip isn't even for sale yet, but already it's become a revenue generator for Linux company Red Hat."

"The company today announced services, some of them free and some of them costing a fee, for companies that wish to bring their software or hardware to the Itanium chip. The announcement was made at today's Intel Developer Forum in San Jose, Calif."

"Itanium, which has been delayed by Intel so that systems won't arrive until next year, is the first in a family of 64-bit chips from the company. It hopes to use Itanium and future 64-bit chips to overpower high-end computer systems from Sun Microsystems, IBM, Compaq Computer and others."
