"Compaq Computer Corp., which was providing the 64-bit Alpha processor used as a development platform for Microsoft Corp.'s Windows 2000, officially pulled the plug on any further development of that port, executives said publicly.
At the same time, Microsoft, Redmond, Wash., said it would stop its own development effort and concentrate on running 64-bit Windows 2000 on the Intel Corp. platform.
Enrico Pesatori, Compaq's senior vice president for enterprise computing, said in a letter to customers Thursday that the Houston-based company would focus its Alpha platform on its Tru64 Unix-based operating system as well as Linux."
