"In the latest industry embrace of open-source advocates, Hewlett-Packard and Intel on Tuesday released a free IA-64 developers kit that allows the Linux community to develop, test, debug, and run IA-64 applications for Intel's upcoming Itanium processor-based servers and workstations."

"The Itanium-based systems will support Linux and other operating systems, according to Mike Balma, director of marketing for HP's open-source and Linux operations."

"Available through either the HP or Intel Web site, the new development kit will enable developers to use current IA-32 systems to emulate a 64-bit Linux environment running on Intel Itanium processor systems, Balma said."
