You've probably all heard the news by now (I think it's bad!), but what do you think this means for the future of the Alpha chip? Last thing I heard, Compaq owned the rights, but HP helped develop Itanium. I doubt it will carry on development and manufacture, this would get right up Intel's nose.
So what do you think? Is Alpha doomed?

Who cares! Lucent just discovered something that's gonna change all this silicon crap forever! BTW, the merge of HP and Compaq won't do anything but produce the best Enterprise servers ever!!
