Intel Transitive's translation software will be used to let software from rival RISC processors run on Intel's Itanium and Xeon server processors. The partnership is designed to make it easier for customers to scrap competitors' gear in favor of Intel-based systems. "With this relationship with Intel, Intel is funding development and providing us access to engineers so we can accelerate the development of processor-operating system combinations," Transitive Chief Executive Bob Wiederhold said in an interview.

So, where are all the comments about "When will OS X Tiger Server run on Itanium"? I am just fooling around, but I'm still wondering where are the comments about "When will OS X Server run on Itanium" are?

You're it, and I'm the first crap follow-up.

Seriously, though. Why would anyone want to run Mac OS X (any kind) on Itanium? I suppose they will be making an XServe Intel-something eventually, but I don't think they'll be adding a third architecture into the mix: PowerPC (32/64), x86 (32/64) *and* Itanium.

Granted, an Itanium iMac would be awesome. Sugarcube iceberg. Sweet.
