That and did you notice the bottom of the C/Net article earlier...said 
they would be sticking with a two-prong hardware approach (MIPS and 
Itanium) for the indefinite future since they had planned to jump to 
Itanium but their customers were preventing it... now if they'd only 
get a clue and can the Itanium hardware completely.  It's too late for 
HP....well maybe not technically, but definitely for their board of 
execs... i.e. Mako is really nice and makes Itanium 2 and beyond look 
like babies toys...but alas.
