I've recently aquired a big ol monstrosity of a Alphaserver. Not sure what model but its big and square (not as big but roughly Crimson shaped) that is supposed to have dual procs in it. It boots to some kind of prom but after that I'm lost. My question is what are my OS options and what are the Pro/Con's of each. I understand it will run Tru64 but possible licencing issues? Also NT but I'd like to forgo that. Anyone know how the linux or Open/Net/Free BSD support is for these? The guy I got it from was a BSD developer with multiple Alpha machines so there is hope there.
No matter where you go, there you are...
