I believe Jim is more or less right -- DEC is Digital Equiment Corporation,
the folks who brought you the VAX, and the Alpha is another DEC platform.
I think actually the Alpha replaced the VAX, but the details are fuzzy in
my memory. Check out the Digital website at and
search around - at this time of the evening I'm not sure how reliable my
facts are beyond the fact that it's a Digital platform.
