# The enterprise systems division is in terrible shape. Attention must be focused first on the Operating Systems, then on storage and hardware.
# The HP-UX/Tru64 merger should again be taken up, probably favoring Tru64. "TruHP 12 UNIX" should target PA-RISC, Itanium, and Opteron. GNU Userland wherever possible, RPM packager, AdvFS, 128-cpu scalability, binary compatibility with previous OS implmentations on their respective platforms.
# An Opteron port of OpenVMS must be immediately undertaken. Opteron ports of HP's operating systems will prove HP's commitment. No customer wants a knife in the back of their OS.
# In addition to CDE/OpenVMS, immediate ports of GNOME and KDE should be undertaken. OpenOffice should also work.
# New, inexpensive SATA SANS using the DEC Storageworks command sets (in additon to Win32/X GUI). I should also be able to "run clone" via a TCP connection, without loading an ugly gui (or any gui at all).
# Low-end Storageworks for SOHO users. Works with any 3rd-party drives. Under $1k, maybe less.
# The PC divison should do some real innovation. ATX was a step forward, but standard, easily interchangable motherboard form-factors (easy slide-out replacement, no tools required) would get you both recognition and sales. Give the designs to Dell, or anybody else who asks.
# Storageworks in a PC bios.
# Cross-license the entire Alpha architecture with AMD, in exchange for Opteron manufacturing rights. Give AMD the option to resume Alpha development/production if they desire.
# Be prepared to lower the cost of printer consumables. The day will come.
