"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
"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."
