The foundation for the new world of computing we envision is one that Compaq has been building and reinforcing since we introduced the first industry compatible portable computer 16 years ago - that is, standards-based computing.

I've been thinking a lot about that first Compaq product during the last few weeks.

I don't know how many of you remember it. It's nickname was the "luggable," and for a very good reason. It weighed 28 pounds - 7 to 8 times heavier than today's lightest notebook computers.

It was also about as rugged as they come.

For people whose machines would not boot-up, the tech support people had a unique solution: hold the computer about three to six inches above the floor and drop it.

Try that with your Think-pad.

Well, both Compaq and the industry have come a long way since then. In 1997, standards based platforms represented 70 percent of hardware spending worldwide. By the year 2001, that number is expected to exceed 75 percent.

Industry standards are behind two of the most important trends in computing - the emergence of Windows NT as a strategic, enterprise operating system and the expansion of the Internet into every corner of the world.

The continued enhancement of Windows NT - particularly with the upcoming release of NT 5.0 - is helping push standards-based computing higher and higher into the enterprise.

The standards that define the Internet make it possible for hundreds of millions of people to communicate, collaborate and conduct commerce on a global scale - regardless of which platforms they use.

Until now, the criticism of standards-based computing was that it could not deliver the performance, scalability and reliability of systems based on proprietary architectures.

Through our E2000 architecture, we are addressing that issue. During the next two years, Compaq will deliver high-performance, Windows NT-based systems that will support the most demanding enterprise needs.

But it is clear that the vast majority of enterprise customers will continue to have mixed environments. They will use PCs and mainframes Windows NT and UNIX and they will look to their IT partners to help them integrate these diverse computing environments.
在PC-Expo的重要演讲

Eckhard Pfeiffer

1998年6月16日

我们认为,通往计算新纪元的基础就是基于标准的计算解决方案,而这正是自16年前我们推出第一台工业兼容便携式电脑时就已经建立,并在一直不断加深的理念。

在过去的几个星期中,我常常想起康柏的第一个产品,想起了关于它的很多事情。

我不知道你们当中有多少人会记起它。它的绰号叫作“便拖式电脑”,之所以这样叫是有充足的理由的。它重约28镑,大约是今天最轻的笔记本电脑的7到8倍重。

它看上去也很粗糙。

当时如果谁的机器无法启动,技术支持人员有一个独特的解决方法:将计算机举起离地板约3到6英寸的地方,然后松开手……

请这样试试您的Think-pad。

现在,康柏以及整个计算机业界已经走过了很长一段路。1997年,符合工业标准的平台占全球硬件的70%。到2001年,这个比率将超过75%。

计算领域最重要的两个趋势推动了工业标准的发展:其一即是Windows NT逐渐成为一种战略性的企业操作系统,其二即Internet已迅速扩展至全球的每个角落。

Windows NT功能的不断增强,尤其是即将推出的Windows NT5.0版,将极大地推动标准计算更加深入企业。

Internet的标准使数以万计的人们可以在全球范围内进行通讯、合作以及商务交易,而这一切并不受您本身所使用的平台限制。

时至今日,对标准计算解决方案的批评主要在于其无法提供与基于专有结构的系统一样的性能、可伸缩性和可靠性。

我们正在使用E2000体系结构来解决这个问题。在今后两年内,康柏将推出高性能、基于Windows NT的系统,该系统将支持最苛刻的企业需求。

很显然绝大多数企业客户将继续使用混合的环境。他们将既使用个人电脑,也使用大型机、既运行Windows NT,也运行UNIX。他们将依靠他们的信息技术合作伙伴帮助他们对这种多样化的计算环境进行无缝地集成。
