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.

Good thing DEC killed Alpha so they wouldn't be stuck on a niche architecture only used for VMS and a proprietary Unix, eh?

Bitter? Me? Nah!
