News just breaking on Digital from TMF Jeanie 10/27/1997:Seems they've struck a deal with Intel in which they'll pay $700 Million for Digital's Alpha operations. Wasn't Alpha the one part of Digital's operations they said they would never sell? =====================================================My take on this post is that DIGITAL originally wanted Alpha to become part of a High-Margin 64-bit solution but customers (except for LEGO) were not willing to trust in Mr. Palmer. Somehow he was not of the same stature as Mr. Olsen. Years after Alpha was available not many large corporations were yet interested. Intel found 32-bit life by combining some RISC advantages into it's Pentium desktop chips and developed more powerful Server class chips for the data center.JTT
