I think it's unmarked.

My SYS$WELCOME doesn't mention any of them. However, I got a kick out of
how the banner on the GUI Login still says "|d|i|g|i|t|a|l|" under V7.2-1H1,
though with 'xdm' from TCPIP 5.1 on other systems you never see it, it's
freaky how it looks like a plain UNIX xdm.

As for saying Compaq, my 7.2 books, and my latest CD's are all that say it.
I'm just wondering what this will do to the price of used DS10's!
