CNET News.com: Linux computer maker aims to tap Alpha chip

“Linux computer maker Atipa has acquired DCG Computer Group,
bolstering its push to provide Linux computers and services for
machines based on Compaq’s Alpha chip as well as Intel
chips….”

“The Alpha connection distinguishes Atipa from VA, which doesn’t
currently offer Alpha chip support. Linux software sellers such as
Red Hat, SuSE and TurboLinux have versions of the operating system
for Alpha, and Mandrakesoft is working on one.”

Through the acquisition, announced Monday, Atipa will be
able to offer customized Beowulf systems built from Alpha or Intel
systems.
IBM and Compaq also are pushing ahead with their own
Beowulf systems.”
