There is no progress to report at this time.

That is too open-ended a question. While there is always "a chance", I would
not buy an Alpha system based on the expected availability of these libraries.
>no incentive to do so if those products might undermine DEC's market for UNIX
That is not the issue.
>rumors that DEC will be lowering it's prices for UNIX soon.
Little or no effect, unless it makes it worthwhile to buy a whole license
just to get the DXML libraries.
>Digital's DXML is worth it's price...if we could only buy it.
I understand. Digital Semiconductor understands. We have not given up, just
have no progress to report.
