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?

(for those of you who don't remember me, I'm back!)

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!!

Unfortunately Aplpha is doomed. It was doomed before the acquisition and this didn't improve its surviving chances (on the opposite).

Of course it will. Except if Lucent doesn't discover a way out of its currently very bad shape.

BTW what was that Lucent discovered of such a brilliance? (a C5? :wink: )
