 Interview: The Future of Linux on IA-64

David Mosberger, developer of the initial GCC port to IA-64 and lead kernel architect for Linux on IA-64, tells us why you should care about Intel's new 64-bit chip. David joined an Internet research group within Hewlett Packard in 1997, and a few years later began to contribute to the Itanium port, where he is now lead kernel architect. Since 1988, he has written the first IA-64 back end for the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC), wrote much of the IA-64 toolchain support, and implemented much of the IA-64-specific parts of the Linux kernel.
