Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Sources close to both Microsoft and Compaq's plans have revealed the extent of their co-operation on future versions which are OpenVMS based. Eckhard Pfeiffer, CEO of Compaq, and Bill Gates, CEO of Microsoft, are continuing their plans to leave Intel out in the cold, our sources said. The "alliance" between Compaq and Microsoft extends until 2005, our sources confirmed. Samsung will produce cheap Alphas. "OpenVMS" in its full manifestation is Windows NT 8, our source told us. Where does this leave Intel and the Merced engineers currently fleeing Compaq? Our source refused to be drawn on this one. Tomorrow, we will publish a strictly internal document from Compaq on how it should be seen by the outside world. This is not nearly half as funny as Intel's document How to deal with the European Press but will help all you Compaq partners how to understand the new world order. One snippet suggests that all Compaq badges have to be on the belt, "or lower".... A sign of a gulag, we will be bound... ® RegisTroid 64 bisschen Why doesn't Intel invest in Compaq?
