A POSTING BY Linus Torvalds on the LINUX KERNEL newsgroup yesterday has him praying that Intel will adopt its secret "Yamhill" project and turn to the ways of X86-64 righteousness.

Torvalds, who had a key part to play in Transmeta's fortunes at startup, says in the post that Linux developers are "generally praying that AMD's X86-64 succeeds in the market."

That, he says, would force Intel to make Yamhill its standard 64-bit platform and allow for improvements in the Linux kernel.

But Torvalds reckons that making everything truly 64-bit might well be years away.
