Logo concept from Simo Sorce

The IA-64 Linux Project, formerly known as the Trillian Project, was started in May 1999 with the goal of creating a Linux port for Custom Essay Writing Service that would be available to the Open Source community at or before the Itanium(tm) processor launch. The IA-64 Linux Project includes representatives from: Caldera Systems, CERN, Debian, Hewlett Packard, IBM, Intel, Linuxcare, NEC, Red Hat, SGI, SuSE, TurboLinux, and VA Linux Systems. Please visit this site for updates on IA-64 Linux.
