  • News & Commentary - Message forums Itanium allies fund open-source [GCC] compiler work
    Submitted by J.W. Bizzaro; posted on Tuesday, March 14, 2006 (2 comments)


    A short article by Stephen Shankland:

    ``In the newest of a series of moves to try to impart momentum to Intel's Itanium processor, allies backing the chip are funding work to improve a key programming tool.

    ``Some of the $10 billion in five years that members of the Itanium Solutions Alliance are spending on Itanium market and technology development will go to Itanium-specific improvements to the GCC, or GNU Compiler Collection. The Gelato Federation, an organization dedicated to boosting Linux on Itanium computers, is overseeing the work, the allies said this week at the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco.''

    Too bad they didn't do this 5+ years ago, when it might have made a difference.

    Submitter Anyone at that point would have been stunned to learn how few systems actually ended up using Itanium. Rumors of the day were that SPARC, PPC, MIPS, etc. would all be abandoned for the superior "Merced" chip to come. What a difference 5 years make.
