Well, to me an inherited IA64 is in the same department as, say, an
inherited Onyx or StarFire 10k server.
I'm not sure how stable the non-enterprise distros run on IA64 - due
to limited availability outside the enterprise (HP discontinued the
workstations years ago, AFAIK), testing is limited, too and stability
always a concern.
