#3 HP have been awful for a long time.

Ruined Compaq too, which was a major sin in my book.

#5 Compaq gobbled up DEC and Tandem. Then HP Gobbled up Compaq.

#6 CrazyFool, you are showing signs of "Thanksgiving Overdose Syndrome" or TOS because you are tossing around "Compaq gobbled up DEC and Tandem. Then HP Gobbled up Compaq"

Gobble - Gobble, do you see ?

I prescribe a stacked Roast Beef Sandwich consumed as soon as you can, your symptoms will subside shortly thereafter...

#7 I left DEC just prior to the Compaq gobble. Still have a few friends that hung around.

There were few happy campers when all was said and done.
