the INQUIRER: IDF might have a tad more attention when it kicks off the week after next in San Francisco but Itanium loyalists will also get their moment in the sun soon when the Gelato ICE conference kicks off on 1 October in Singapore.
Why Singapore? Gelato chief Mark Smith refers to “the strong Itanium processor adoption rate in the Asia-Pacific region”. So it's nothing to do with links to Raffles, the gentleman thief or the no chewing-gum laws then.
This is a pretty specific show aimed at ISVs, SIs, developers and others that are working on big scale-up Linux-on-Itanium projects but two interesting things are likely to come out of the confab: a catch-up on the Itanium roadmap and developments in LinuxOnLinux, a project to support virtualisation on the chip.
