Windows Server 2008 R2 will be the last version of Windows Server to support the Intel Itanium architecture.

I picked up on this little bit of information over the weekend, I have never come across the Itanium architecture in a production environment; but somebody somewhere  uses it and will be impacted.

Windows Server 2008 R2 will be the last version of Windows Server to support the Intel Itanium architecture.  SQL Server 2008 R2 and Visual Studio 2010 are also the last versions to support Itanium.
