Suggestions that Compaq Corp may phase out VMS support for VAX and make it an Alpha only server are groundless, the company says. The cost of fixing Y2K bugs in legacy code and the wealth of applications available on other platforms may make VAX customers a less than happy user base. But Compaq is undeterred by research from The Harvard Research Group that said nearly 30% of VAX customers plan to move to another platform over the next five years (CI No 3,454) and intends to continue making VMS servers for both Alpha and VAX for the foreseeable future – with no plans whatsoever to port VMS to Intel chips.
