I have to say I agree with you sometimes. However, on the subject of product
pricing and related topics, the information is coming from those of us
buying from DEC. We _are_ seeing positive change.

Digital _have_ cut the prices substantially, product availability is good
now, and support is generally fairly steady.
Those of us in the Alpha marketplace are enjoying some good results, and
Digital have improved support and availability noticably in the last few months.
They have also told us that we can expect OSF1/DEC UNIX pricing to improve
in January.
