Sounds like a bunch of Intel pr to me.

<A HREF="http://www.theregister.co.uk/content/28/36733.html" target="_new"> Clicky for all those to lazy to cut and paste </A>

If I glanced at a spilt box of tooth picks on the floor, could I tell you how many are in the pile. Not a chance, But then again I don't have to buy my underware at Kmart.

After cutting a celebratory ribbon, Intel's Barrett declared this "the century of Itanium."

Everyone present clapped politely.

"Microsoft sucks," McNealy said, as he left the event.

I wonder if Intel could sue theregister over that, They do take the Itanium very serious.

I really doubt it as satire is a from free speech and to be libel you must show intention of being serious which this obviously isn’t.

That's kind of interesting. Last time I looked Amd was selling 11 Opterons to 1 Itanium. (Linux Format-UK). This was based on the last two quarters of 2k3.

Not really interesting but it is funny, which is just what it was ment to be. I hope you did not get sucked in like I did. seems like I'm 2 for 2 and that just might be a record.
