Compaq Alpha Linux Server

from the no-lovin' dept

Compaq announced a line Alpha based Linux servers. Or is that Linux based Alpha servers? Anyway, the strange thing is this quote from Red Hat CEO on the servers:

“Unfortunately, there aren’t enough Alpha processors in use for us to build a very big business around it…It’s simply not a big business for us.”

I’m surprised to see that the leading alternative OS packager not supporting an alternative chip.
