Yes, I was off by three months. It was announced October 1995, see You still have
to explain how that translates into "fucking around for ages". True,
they haven't moved with the lightning speed of, say, Apple developing

Seriously, for a project involving some difficult systems issues as well
as a lot of testing of hardware configurations from all sorts of
vendors, I don't know what you're bitching about. Unless you're just all
hot and bothered about hooking up some of your Alphas into an NT cluster
and can't stand the frustration of waiting a few more months...

Regarding your Alpha box... why don't you just order it with Digital
Unix or OpenVMS?

And while I'm here... is there a good reason why your web page is
formatted in WingDings?
