Some alpha systems are still in production use. I know a college around here that uses it for a custom security system with keycards. The software they use was never ported to the x86 version (IA32 for people who hate that term) of NT4.

'Re-implementing what I designed in 1979 is not interesting to me personally. For kids who are 20 years younger than me, Linux is a great way to cut your teeth. It's a cultural phenomenon and a business phenomenon. Mac OS X is a rock-solid system that's beautifully designed. I much prefer it to Linux.'
