Nice!!! Glad to see there are a few other people out there that got to experience a speedy system 5 years before the rest of the world. I had an Alpha 266 (21264 IIRC) that ran Redhat 5. My windows slowstation at work was a P75 I think. Windows 3.1 was a POS.Nothing interesting there now. Just a couple of inexpensive laptops.
However at one time I had an Alpha 21164 PC running Linux and Windows. Pretty cool at the time. I worked for DEC at the time and we were able to get some boards designed for aftermarket and a couple of processors. After buying the components necessary to build the machine including the special memory required there was not much savings but the machines were fast for the time. No pictures unfortunately.
We called the processor the Frankenstein chip because it had a couple of bolts sticking out of the case to attach the heat sink to.
I had the more compact version "The CoCo" but it does remind me of the old Goldline TEF10's from a few years back.Unfortunately I have to use 3 at the office.
One desk(floor) Top. main use.
One desktop for programming kit
One desktop (remote) on another site because of crap network and software issues.
And our IT guys wonder why I'm top of the IT call logger list.
Ed, I had one like that.
It was a "Luggable"
Just an update, because I have nothing better to post about.Finally, this is Randal, my work computer.
2x 2.66GHz Xeon, 5 GB ram, 1.5 TB disk space.
