Windows Ah, Intel's IA-64 architecture. More commonly known as Itanium, it can probably be seen as a market failure by now. Intel consistently failed to deliver promised updates, and clock speeds have lagged behind. Regular x86-64 processors have already overtaken Itanium, and now Microsoft has announced that Windows Server 2008 R2 is the last version of Windows to support the architecture.

...and port their system administration tools (which are generally considered "best in class")...


lolwut? Are you on drugs? Being an HP-UX sysadmin is absolutely nightmarish! Their tools are buggy, weird, arcane, and unreliable. SAM is a joke, and other tools are not much better than that. Everything reeks of early-80s-UNIX, even on 11i.
