eWEEK: "The Alpha processor proved a costly investment
that was increasingly difficult to justify, a senior Compaq Computer
Corp. executive said this week.
"This has been a very interesting week for Compaq," said Mike
Winkler, head of Compaq's global business units, admitted during a
news conference yesterday at PC Expo scheduled to tout two new
rack-mounted servers, but which gave way to a broader discussion
of recent events."
