Internet Security Threat Report 2014

The latest edition of a newsletter from industry analyst Terry Shannon, who does the Shannon knows Compaq site has highlighted an interesting Compaq phenomenon. According to Shannon, an acknowledged expert on the Digital-Compaq platform, the company is going through "the mother of all re-orgs". Shannon says in his latest edition of the newsletter, that Compaq is a true believer in the Alpha. He reports on the DECUS conference, an assembly which seems to consist of corporate users of the Alpha platform, none of which necessarily believes that Merced is good. Perhaps that is because of their background... You will have to read it for yourselves. Unfortunately, Shannon's newsletter costs money and Mr Shannon only gives us a glimpse of his insights on his Web site. Two months ago, the same newsletter reported that Compaq had insisted Shannon put the words: "this is not associated with Compaq" on his newsletter. That has irritated a whole spate of Compaq and Digital corporate users who support Shannon's flagstaff. Even Register readers have emailed us about this legal point. According to unconfirmed reports, the end users were, as The Register reports from time to time "up in arms". ®
