Intel zal vandaag op het Intel Developer Forum de eerste Merced samples demonstreren. The Register heeft info:
Intel will also announce a further series of IA-64 initiatives including a specification called DIG64, intended to promote cross interoperability between Merced and other platforms. The operating systems which aim to run on Merced include Linux, IBM/SCOs Monterey, Win64, HP/UX, Sun Solaris and Novell Modesto.
We reported recently that Intel had succeeded in producing successful silicon and had managed to boot Linux but was having problems with booting Win64. Tomorrow will demonstrate whether a small army of developers from Microsoft have been able to iron out teething problems with the silicon.
