News.com: Hewlett-Packard is working to take Linux into several new areas of the server market, including 64-processor servers, the company is expected to announce Wednesday, on the eve of a major Linux trade show.
The company said in January that it supported Linux on 16-processor Integrity Itanium servers. Now through a program called BigTux, HP is working to build support for 64-processor Integrity Superdome models into the two prevailing versions of Linux sold today from Red Hat and Novell, said Martin Fink, HP's vice president of Linux. Fink is expected to give a keynote address next week at the LinuxWorld Conference and Expo in Boston.
