No, but future upgrade plans arent going to be as bright and rosy as
they once were.  I'm glad that we didnt just make the big purchase
of Alpha machines that we were debating... 

However, what will be interesting is the systems the Govt. bought/buys -
dont they require 20-year support plans?  DecPaq will end up supporting
the EV45 and EV7 stuff for a while after its no longer a current
product. 8-)
