Hello from Gregg C Levine
Funny you should be bringing that up now.
HP is holding a road show on the state of the art as applied to the
Alpha, and relatives, here in NYC, tomorrow Wednesday the 15.

They have already told me, that the EV7z processors will stay active
at least until something runs out. Figure about the next ten years.
The original blue Alphas, are supported, I mean you can call them and
ask for support for parts, and manuals, but that's it.
