# SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 3, 2004 - Intel Corporation and Red Flag
# Software Co., Ltd, today announced that Red Flag is the first
# company to use the Intel® C++ Compiler 8.0 for Linux* to compile a
# commercial version of its Linux operating system.  Red Flag used
# Intel's tools to optimize its Red Flag Server 4.1 series products. 

I have no idea if they're still doing it, but given that the Red Flag 
site hasn't had any new news since 2005, I doubt it..
