Eerder had Compaq besloten dat de ontwikkeling van Windows 2000 voor de Alpha-processor moest worden stopgezet. Nu brengt WinInformant ons het blijde nieuws dat Compaq is teruggekomen op haar beslissing en dat Windows 2000 er toch ook voor de Compaq Alpha processor komt. Hieronder het nieuwsberichtje:
According to sources at Compaq Computer, the company will soon announce that Windows 2000 is coming back to the 64-bit Alpha microprocessor platform. After quietly removing the people responsible for the original decision to drop support for Windows NT/2000, Compaq CEO Michael Capellas has worked closely with Microsoft to ensure that its premier operating system is finally released for the Alpha. "It's a done deal," I was told Wednesday morning. "Capellas wants Windows 2000 on Alpha and he regrets that Compaq ever cancelled those plans." I'll have more on this exciting development Thursday. Until then, Alpha fans can rejoice: Windows 2000 is coming!
