The essential guide to IT transformation

Intel Developer Forum Reliable sources at the Intel Developer Forum say that Sun's support for Intel's 64-bit Itanium processor with the Solaris operating system is weakening to the point of non-existence. Solaris is now likely to be dropped for the Itanium platform, according to the same sources. The reports, which could not be confirmed with Sun Microsystems at press time, would leave NCR in something of a hole, because its Itanium systems were based on the Solaris solution.

We will update this story as fresh information emerges. ® IDF Spring 2000: Full Coverage
