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?"

Re: Alpha comeback would change a lot of things

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.

Slashdot used to use Alpha servers running Linux. Didn't crush UltraSparc or even Intel at the time.
