Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

A press conference in central London today demonstrated the confusion Compaq is suffering after its takeover of Tandem and Digital. Richard George, Alpha Server product manager for Compaq in the UK, said: "There will be two chips in the next millennium. One will be made by Intel and other will be the Alpha chip." George said that the PA-RISC chip, the MIPS chip (from SGI) and any other iterations of 64-bit architecture will disappear and very soon. He said: "If we look at [Sun] SPARC, they're trying to get out of that market. I would say, 'Forget Intel vs Alpha. Think of it as one RISC architecture versus another.'" George was asked whether he thought that IA-64 was a RISC architecture and he said: "AMD will be able to produce a plug compatible chip with the Alpha." He added: "Samsung will produce $1.6 billion of Alpha chips this year." ®
