"Intel is considering adding to its portfolio of Linux investments and believes that its biggest challenge is helping make the open source operating system scaleable."
"Graylish said Linux has come out of nowhere and is a major factor in the Internet revolution, and that Intel's investment in Linux 'is in scalability.' 'The biggest Linux challenge is in getting it to scale to a high number of processors,' he said.
Graylish [director of architecture at Intel Europe] commented that this is the reason why Intel 'has put resources into the Trillian,' a consortium of vendors including VA Linux that aims to port Linux to Intel's forthcoming high-end 64bit processor Itanium, formerly Merced."
