* Itanic, going down...

Microsoft has officially canned the idea of WinXP for the Itanic, er, Itanium chipset.

Since nobody was selling the software, Microsoft's retiring of Windows XP for Itanium is no great surprise, said Nathan Brookwood, principal analyst with research company Insight 64, in Saratoga, California.

"It has been increasingly obvious over the last year that Itanium is moving more and more into the mid-to-high-end server space and away from low-end servers and desktops," Brookwood said.

64-bit systems offer users greater computing power as systems can process more data per clock cycle and can use larger amounts of memory. Advanced Micro Devices Inc.'s Athlon64 and Opteron processors, as well as Intel's Xeon processors, currently support 64-bit extensions.
Well, if Intel thinks it can do the server-only thing for Itanic, great; I'll happily acquire an AMD64 chip as soon as socket 939 becomes affordable.
