Compaq to give away VMS licences on Alpha to hobbyists
Now what's the connection between AMD and Compaq, again?
Pre-eminent Alpha tracker Terry Shannon is reporting that Compaq is set to give away free VMS licences to home and hobbyist users of the Alpha platform. Shannon, a journalist who runs Shannon knows Compaq, said that the system has been in place for nearly 18 months on VAX systems. Compaq is now extending it to Alpha systems, with the date likely to be in early March. Interested people should therefore go to the following URL: Montagar in early March to discover more. This is very interesting, given the close connection between AMD and Compaq, we think. ®
