[OT] Samsung to Invest $500 million in Compaq's Alpha Chips

Interesting reading:


 The plan also looks to position Alpha for use in running Linux
 software-based computers. Linux is an alternative operating
 system to Microsoft Corp.'s (MSFT.O) Windows operating system,
 which relies on Intel computer chips.
 In addition, Compaq has partnered with Cygnus Solutions Inc., a
 developer of Linux programming tools that has agreed to be
 acquired by Red Hat Inc. (RHAT.O), to boost the number of Linux
 applications ready to run on Alpha-based computers.
