Intel to boost Linux programming tools

Author: JT Smith

CNet reports that
Intel, "one of the first mainstream companies to endorse the Linux operating system," will
release programming tools Thursday to make Linux programs run better on its chips.

The chipmaker will announce compilers that translate Linux programs written in C++ or
Fortran languages into commands an Intel Pentium 4 or Itanium chip can understand.
