Eckhart Pfeiffer, CEO of Compaq had
a lot to say
at the PCExpo in New York this morning. But although Compaq
will now be all things to all people, its aim is to migrate
the Unix customers it inherited with Digital to Windows NT.
Depending on how Compaq plays it, Alpha may either benefit from
NT (lots of apps available first on Alpha) or lose to Merced
(why buy Alpha when all the apps are on Merced?).
