Former resellers at Digital have received an ultimatum from Compaq that they must move their allegiance and accept those conditions or else. Sources across the world said today they had received a letter from Compaq saying they had one week to shift from the Digital contract to the new one or else. Said the letter, seen by Registerjournalists: "Please be aware that if you chose not to take advantage of this offer and do not return the signed documents as listed above, your membership in the existing ASAP program and all program benefits will conclude on February 1, 1999. "We do however know that you will be delighted with our new program and that taking adventage of charter membership is an offer you can't afford to refuse." Said one reseller: "Considering that failing to accept their gracious offer terminates my rights to use the software development tools I just paid almost $700 to Compaq for the first of December and which I've only had for about three to four weeks, they are amazingly prescient." Compaq had not responded to repeated calls at press time. ®
