"The [Sun] representative said: 'What is Intel going to do for those customers that have expressed a desire to use Solaris to bring IA-64 to market?"
" 'Intel's claims about lack of support from Sun are a smokescreen the industry should see through. Solaris 8 is ready for Itanium, we're going to give it and the source away for free. Those are moves designed to help the Intel environment most.' "
