I'm feeling active today, so I'll throw out the*rumor* I heard and see what comes back:
I have it on pretty bad authority, so I'm not totally buying it yet, but I have heard that NCR has struck a deal with HP to put their product on HP-UX on IA-64, HP is supposedly working on a port NOW.
I hate to say this, but of all of the OSes they could have picked.... This is a personal opinion, but after working on HP systems for some time and having experienced the shortcomings of the OS on a platform it was tailored to, I really don't know if I want to see what will come of that same OS ported to a commodity hardware platform. I know NCR will maintain some control over the hardware in stalled in the teradata systems, but HP has to write the OS to go on all IA-64 hardware and drive a lot of cards and such NCR will not use. I am just concerned, I don't know that I have faith that HP can produce what I would want to see in an OS that runs Teradata.
Anyone else agree/disagree/think I'm nuts?
