CorporateIT: Trillian project promise Linux for IA64

“Typically, Linux supports a chip after it is already
developed,” said Mike Balma, HP marketing manager for open source
and Linux. “This time they are being developed at the same time and
the operating system will be available on the release of the
hardware. This is a coming of age for Linux…”

“Linux has grown in significance compared to other operating
environments and it can no longer be ignored. It is growing at 100%
in terms of market share. While a lot of things are happening at
the low-end, IA64 provides a powerful platform for the high-end,”
said Balma.”
