"Windows Server 'Longhorn' for Itanium-based systems is designed specifically for database workloads and custom and line-of-business applications," Microsoft said.
Itanium is not a popular chip, and it seems a bit of an anticlimax to have a server operating system for it which such a limited range. Windows Server makes up a substantial portion of the server market for x86 (around 30% worldwide), and this doesn't seem to be making them any headway. What oh what is Microsoft up to?
