Compaq workstation prog in chaos
Reports say x86 and Alpha products "brown bread"
Reports reaching The Register from insiders at Compaq are suggesting that its workstation strategy is in chaos. According to the insiders, the Compaq workstation (x86 and Alpha) is "officially toast" today. This is nothing to do with the Alpha versus x86 argument currently raging. Compaq will make an official and very subdued announcement towards the end of this month. The insider tells us that there will be commercial desktops (read professional) and servers in a Brave New Windows World. It's too early in the morning here for us to contact Compaq for the official no-comment we expect. But we'll try later in the day. ® RegisTroid 911 'Brown Bread' is Cockney rhyming slang for dead, sort of a bit like toast.
