How much does IBM make on Itanium? Power? IBM makes over one hundred
million on Itanium -- nearly _all_ of the Itanium market (far more than
HP, who helped design the chip!), and then even more on Power as well.

It's really sad to see such statements, because that could have been a
major Caldera profit center. And that money would have been turned into
more GPL Linux development.
