Hardware, Embedded Systems There are increasing rumors that Alpha might be brought back to life. The Inq sets the big 'if' aside and explores the possiblities: "What if there really is a will to get Alpha back into the changed market? What sort of chip would it have to be to have that good chance of success, if any?"

I would love to see an Alpha based Linux offering. I don't think Solaris and UltraSparc would stand much of a chance if that happened.

I can see your point with the UltraSparc, but with Solaris being open now, why not just port it to the alpha? Choice is always nice.
