Dec 21, 2001, 14:58 (0 Talkback[s])
"SourceForge.net's Linux on Large Systems Foundry brings together many projects dedicated to improving support for Linux on large, multiprocessor systems. Participating projects draw in developers from large corporations, from academic research groups, from independent industry groups like the Open Source Development Lab, to independent Open Source developers.

Among the foundry projects are a group of projects motivated by the impending release of Intel's next Itanium processor (McKinley), and the associated 82870 chipset from Intel, and similar chipsets from OEMs. These projects are referred to collectively as the Atlas project.

Atlas brings together a strong group of hardware and systems companies, including Bull, HP, IBM, Intel, NEC, and SGI, with Linux companies like TurboLinux, to build Linux support for McKinley-based systems."
