Red Hat Trumpets Linux for Alpha

Red Hat Inc. last week released Red Hat Alpha Deluxe, a Linux distribution for systems based on Compaq Computer Corp.'s Alpha chip. The operating system will come preinstalled on Compaq's ES and DS AlphaSeries servers and Compaq AlphaStations. Based on Red Hat Linux 7.0, Alpha Deluxe contains a number of programming modules tuned to harness the power of the 64-bit Alpha chip, which differentiates it from Red Hat Linux 7.0 for the Intel platform, said Melissa London, spokeswoman for Red Hat. Alpha Deluxe is priced at US$79.95.
