Uhm, it hasnt been OSF/1 for years and years now.  It was renamed/changed
into "Digital UNIX" and then "Tru64".  Same product, just different names.

"OSF/1" -> "Digital UNIX" -> "Tru64".

Tru64 is still a current product from DEC, er, I mean Compaq, er, uhm, wait,
HP. 8-)  We used it in production on many large machines at my last job.
