A better question might be, how many DS15’s were produced compared to something like the AlphaStation 200 4/233. I’d love a DS15, but if they are far from cheap. A lot of the VAR’s are trying to get folks to migrate to Emulated Alpha’s from what I’m seeing. My guess is that anyone that was going to convert to Itanium did, and many of those are now looking towards porting to Xeon. Personally I’m skipping Itanium, but will be looking to move to Xeon at some point. I rather like the idea of running OpenVMS on an HP DL360 or DL380. Zane
