    Intel will keep improving Itanium and it'll keep gaining share from POWER/SPARC.

    This is the typical Intel playbook...first few iterations suck, but keep getting better and better until everyone goes, "holy crap, Intel owns this space".

    Given that Itanium has among the least restrictive implementation environments (granted, not hard when the competition is IBM :)), I think the only big question is whether or not x86 with boatloads of RAS will consume Itanium's market(s) or not, given time (demand for improved RAS on x86, as sizes of data sets increase, exists regardless of Power, SPARC, or Itanium).
