Microsoft has said that it is ending support for Intel's Itanium processor and that Windows Server 2008 R2 will be the last version of Windows Server to support this Intel architecture. As noted in the story on PC World, SQL Server 2008 R2 and Visual Studio 2010 are also the last versions to support Itanium.


Windows Server 2008 R2 will be the last version of Windows Server to support the Intel Itanium architecture.

"The news will come as a setback for Intel, which has struggled to get its 64-bit Itanium processors more widely used by server makers. It released the latest, quad-core version of Itanium in February after several delays. By that time Red Hat had already announced in January that it would not support Itanium with the next release of its Linux OS distribution."
