Designers who worked for Compaq on its Merced program are calling it quits as it becomes apparent there is nothing for them to do.
Sources inside Compaq told The Register, “It’s not more or less bad stuff happening to Merced – it’s nothing happening for Merced. It’s like one big dress-up for a party that never happened.”
The source added, “You know that it’s over when the Intel guys working on the Merced BIOS started peddling their wares as the EFI stuff at IDF, because they’re tired of waiting around for the real Merced proto-boards.”
