What ever happened to Tandem and NonStop OS 1966
I have no idea when. I think I'd guess at one the PDP-8s. We were doing a lot of stuff. Our customers were doing even more.

Eric Chomko SNIP IIRC They did provide OEM boards. SNIP The Alpha was limited in how it could be opened up due to export restrictions. Intel didn't...
puzzled emoticon here A PeeCee flavored system is not a microcomputer.
I thought they did; our customers certainly did. If our customers did, so did we.
Ah, you measure by inches rather than efficacy. Tch; that's too bad.

Distribution: PDPs were minis turned maxis... A mircocomputer has as its CPU a microprocessor, unless you...
Repeating a false statement will not make it true. Alpha was not a failure. Even this year, I've heard grieving from customers who have had to move from their Alphas and the base software.
You haven't given any reasons. They actually were early.
Which Alpha seminar? When was this seminar? Who gave it?
Oh, for crying out loud. I knew DEC was in trouble in 1978. My first hints were in 1972.
JHC, you don't have to be a leader in anything to be successful.
You really do not know what you're talking about.
Were you there? If not, who was your source. Give names. W.r.t. the Alpha my source was JMF, among others. I suspect that most Alphas ran his code. I never did find out if his worked lasted or was replaced.
Besides the fact that you're comparing apples and super-sonic engines, you are ignoring AMD. If you had been watching, you would find that AMD is providing more computing thruput than Intel over the past couple of years. The places where computing thruput has a higher priority than user thruput is in the science and some engineering industries.
