Intel Open Runtime Platform paper released

Intel, the huge microprocessor manufacturer, has released a paper about the Open Runtime Platform, a new execution environment.

The trick here is that it is designed to be a high-performance platform for running other transportable platforms, like Java's JVM and Microsoft .Net's CLI, on multiple platforms (Intel-based, of course), including IA-32 and Itanium, under multiple operating systems, including Windows and Linux.

Looks kind of interesting. I wonder if/when it will really see the light of day.
