Friday 19 January — LCA — IA64

Ho hum. I wonder if these things will ever actually be released. There are interesting features here, like multiple page sizes, and variable page sizes, i386 binary support and PA-RISC binary affinity (binary conversion at run time). They will be cool if they ever arrive, but I think I am of the opinion that the world is much better off going with one of the risc architectures like PPC or Sparc.
