4-way Linux Alpha SMP server spotted

First of its kind?

Fervent DEC and Compaq watcher Terry Shannon, who edits Shannon knows Compaq is reporting that he saw a four way SMP AlphaServer ES40 running at DECUS. DECUS is the former DEC User group, a highly influential forum for putting pressure on the former Digital and the church of latterday Compaq (The Big Q). According to Shannon, to the best of his knowledge, Compaq is the first big vendor to get four way symmetric multiprocessing running on Linux. ®
