There is one more OS which I am aware of that runs on Alpha: Meditech
Magic. It is a proprietary standalone MUMPS OS which runs hospital
applications for (mostly) smaller hospitals. It boots from the same
console as Tru64/VMS but from there on is completely different.

You need specific hardware, firmware versions and the like for it to

Meditech has succumbed to the one OS future and is pushing Magic
