"Dell reinforced its commitment to the project formerly known as Trillian with the recent Red Hat announcement that it has released an early version of its source code for the Intel Itanium processor platform targeting high-end servers and workstations."

"Red Hat is on TurboLinux's heels with its release. TurboLinux outed its code in late March according to Lonn Johnston, vice president of corporate communications. Since then, he said, TurboLinux has completed three revisions of its early release. "It's getting to be fairly mature," he said. Both Red Hat and TurboLinux distributions enable IA-64 software development for intensive computing environments, from high-performance design automation to enterprise-level databases."

"London said that the full release of Red Hat's offering is slated to coincide with the IA-64 hardware availability from Intel. Johnston said that although TurboLinux has another revision in the works and expects it to soon be released, TurboLinux was not yet prepared to announce a a date for its availability."
