"Intel and Hewlett-Packard released programming tools for
developing Linux applications for Intel's Itanium processor."
"The two companies are distributing a free developer's toolkit
for testing and running Linux applications. HP developed the
toolkit's core component, the IA-64 emulator, which allows the
development and testing of Linux applications for Itanium on
existing Intel processors...."
"Not to be left out, AMD announced a strategic relationship
with Lineo for providing embedded systems developers with Linux
software for Internet appliances."
"The two companies will collaborate on providing Lineo's Embedix
Linux on AMD's entire processor line, including K6 and Athlon."
"By including Embedix Linux in the AMD development kits, we are
able to eliminate many of the hardware and software integration
issues experienced by developers when designing embedded
solutions," Lineo CEO Bryan Sparks said in a statement."
