"Bull and MandrakeSoft today announced that as a result of a successful technological collaboration in the area of Intel Itanium architecture, MandrakeSoft is making a beta version of its award-winning Linux-Mandrake operating system for Itanium-based servers available for immediate download.

"Linux is increasingly recognized by enterprise users as a highly attractive, low cost, scalable and robust solution compared to proprietary platforms," Jacques LeMarois, CEO and co-founder of MandrakeSoft. "The launch of Bull Escala IL line of servers based on Intel Itanium Architecture is a great opportunity for us to further partner with Bull, who has already announced a certification program forthe Linux-Mandrake operating system on its entire Intel-based server range. We are both actively seeking to leverage Bull's i-scale Attitude program to recruit pilot projects to fully capitalize on this new business opportunity".
