"NEC Solutions has become the first Japanese company to join the IA-64 Linux Project - an international association of computing companies that is developing the Linux operating system on Intel's IA-64 processors."
"In the future, Intel computer processors based on the IA-64 architecture will aim to provide computer servers and workstations with higher levels of performance and functionality."
"Targeted for production in mid-2000, Intel Itanium processors will be the first IA-64 processors. The IA-64 Linux Project is working to port the Linux operating system to the new processors so that developers can build applications and software that take advantage of the new processors."
"Naturally, the Linux port will be available to the open source community."
