"Making sure it gets a running start at the Intel-based 64-bit desktop market, IBM is readying its first Itanium-based workstation and currently has 209 applications certified to run on the system."

"Code-named Rattler, the system is expected to be positioned at the top of IBM's Z-Pro workstation line, with company officials expecting to ship it in on the first day the 64-bit chip is available. That is now expected to be in late January or early February."

"The upcoming system can hold up to two processors and will be available with Microsoft's Windows 2000 and its successor, Whistler, when the latter becomes available sometime next year."

"IBM also plans to offer the system with versions of Linux from the top four providers: Red Hat, Caldera Systems, Turbolinux, and SuSE. IBM is also testing it with its AIX 5L operating system, formerly known as Monterey."
