"Linuxcare, Inc., a leader in providing comprehensive services for Linux and open-source software, today became the first service-focused Linux company to join the IA-64 Linux Project, formerly known as the Trillian Project. The IA-64 Linux Project is an industry effort to port Linux to Intel's IA-64 architecture. Linuxcare's involvement in developing and optimizing Linux on IA-64 positions the company as a leading Linux service provider for products based on the Itanium processor."

"Linuxcare's Linux expertise will boost the IA-64 Linux Project's efforts to port Linux to IA-64 before the processor's launch later this year," said Eric Sindelar, IA-64 Linux Project program manager. "Linuxcare's participation as a service-only company will help enable high-end computing on Linux to be fully supported as a key component of Internet infrastructure and the enterprise."

"Linuxcare will pool several of its top Linux and open-source experts to work on the IA-64 Linux Project. When IA-64 Linux is completed, Linuxcare will use its service delivery expertise and leading-edge infrastructure to support Linux on Itanium."
