ZDNET UK: Linux four tie in with Trillian

“Four of the main Linux distributors have joined Trillian, the
industry initiative led by VA Linux to port the Linux operating
system to Intel’s 64bit Itanium processor.”

Red Hat, Caldera, SuSE and TurboLinux committed last week
to Linux development and distribution for Intel’s 64bit
architecture. The announcement means that every major Linux vendor
is lending weight to the Trillian Project
­ the initiative
that aims to have IA-64 Linux available for distribution when the
first systems based on the Intel Itanium processor begin shipping
­ expected to be in the second half of the year.”
