PC Week : Compaq to Halt NT on Alpha development

About a year ago, I got to test-drive an Alpha/NT box for a couple months. This was when DEC was trying to woo the Mac crowd with a faster, cheaper graphics machine. Stuff that been ported to Alpha (Painter & Quark) screamed. Everything else ran under an NT emulator. The really impresive thing was that the machine "learned" NT as you used it, re-compiling into native Alpha code. Unfortunately, we could never get QuickTime installed which basically meant it was D.O.A. via slashdot.
