Hardware, Embedded Systems A Dutch company has released an Alpha emulator for Windows XP (what's with the buzz around Alpha lately, people?). From their website: "The PersonalAlpha software lets you run your Alpha/OpenVMS software on a standard Personal Computer. Imagine running your VMS- programs on your office PC, notebook or computer at home. Develop, test and run Alpha/OpenVMS applications wherever you are. This product proves that Alpha-virtualization in software is possible and commercially available. PersonalAlpha is the 32-bit prelude to a suite of 64-bit VirtualAlpha software products that Emulators International soon will release. These solutions allow you to replace your Alpha computers without changing the applications."

Wow! So what is the trouble with emulation of RISC cpu on x86?

Buy and try PersonalAlpha to decide whether VirtualAlpha is a viable solution for your problem.
Hmm, did i understand them correctly?
I think $465 is too much for trying the unknown software cpu emulator (well, with couple of devices).
