Red Hat "If you run Itanium-based servers in your data center, 2010 has a surprise for you. The dominant supplier of commercial Linux, Red Hat, is not going to be supporting its future Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 on any Itanium platforms, old or new."

windows still suports Itanium. this makes me sad as my Itanium set up was a tripple boot system with Windows server 2008 R2, OpenVMS, and Red Hat linux. Red hat was by far the most somplete of the Itanium distros, so its sad to see it go ;) . though if itanium plans on staying relivent Intel needs to get out some new chips and fast

You say Red Hat was the most complete... are you sure? What is in Red Hat that isn't present in SLES? Just curious.

quality of support we received as well as application stability on the system (out of box).

I don't think your definition of "support" is the same as Red Hat's.
