ZDNET: "The Palo Alto, Calif., company, struggling with an economic downturn and an attempted
acquisition of rival Compaq Computer, apparently decided the line was too expensive to

system, but most of the company's server attention is directed at its 9000 Unix server line and its
NetServer Intel server line."
