Ultrix was never made available for the alpha. The Unix variant for alpha
was originally known as OSF/1 which became Digital Unix after most of the
OSF/1 consortium disappeared and then became Tru64 Unix after Compaq
purchased Digital.

Linux for alpha has some Compaq support engineers who help qualify Linux
for new Alpha systems.
