Intel Itanium is probably more-or-less "legacy" now, like the z80 or m68k not what you expect to see inside a computer that's in current mainstream use. That's the impression I got.

But it's rather recent, so I was wondering if my questions about it would be on-topic here or maybe better off on one of the sister sites


If we follow the criteria given in What constitutes "retro"? (which aren’t necessarily definitive of course), Merced would qualify as retro, but Itanium 2 and later wouldn’t. Kittson (no relation) came out last year so Itanium is still current. I know of a few ongoing installations, all running HP operating systems (HPUX, OpenVMS or NonStop OS).

I’m not sure which sister site would be most appropriate.
