Re: Compaq to buy DEC for 9.6 billion

Such assurances have come to us DEC employees already from the executives
you speak of.  I can't say "don't worry," but I can say we (Research and
Advanced Development) are specifically of great interest to Compaq.

Anyway, speculation will always be speculation, we'll have to wait and see.

But seriously, folks; DEC has, for all it's faults, always been
observed to have a soft spot for the net.  Compaq has no such failings.
This will be a subect of _great_ interest, and "don't worry"'s will
have to come from executives with sufficient rank to make them stick.
