I e-mailed them already and asked for an alpha-linux port, but have gotten
no responce. If anyone's really interested in running it, I suggest you
email as well (since volume=replies in most cases).
I also mentioned that I would be happy to sign an NDA and port it for them
as long as the binaries get generated. Anyone else with programming
experience with Alphas and Linux should do the same (maybe if they like
the idea, we could all colaborate on it and get it done faster).
