Monterey Bay Communications: HP 1000 Beacon Newsletter
HP 1000 Beacon 
 Volume 1, Issue 1 

AHOY Hewlett-Packard 1000 Users!

Welcome to the HP 1000 Beacon, the first in a continuing series for Real Time Users to be published by Monterey Bay Communications. The RTE team at Monterey Bay is looking forward to supporting HP 1000 A-Series and M/E/F Series well into the next century. The purpose of this publication is to provide users with valuable information about ongoing product and service offerings, and about pending changes in the RTE environment. 
Despite what some users may have heard, Hewlett Packard has made a formal commitment to support HP 1000/RTE until the year 2010, including yearly revisions of the operating system software through the year 2000. There has been and will continue to be certain, older products that HP will remove from hardware support over time. However, availability on the majority of A-Series products is assured for at least the next fifteen years! 
Ongoing software enhancements will be driven by user input so it is vitally important that all HP 1000 users let their needs and continued interest in using the platform be known. Release 6.2 for instance, will address numerous defects in prior releases, improve upon the installation process, and provide UNIX-like utilities and support for UNIX file tape. The HP 1000 Series has entered a new era with the addition of the powerful A990 processor and the new functionality available for RTE-A in the 6.0/6.1/6.2 release. Monterey Bay Communications currently offers very affordable A990 upgrade paths for all A-Series and E/F-Series users who want to take advantage of this new product. Under this program, users gain access to improved performance, SCSI peripheral support, and lower maintenance costs. We have these A990 upgrade kits in stock!  HP 1000 users need not worry. HP's commitment to supporting the platform through the year 2010 is well-established and there is no indication that it will change. Beyond this, to a great extent, user input and participation will determine the quality and depth of support HP will devote to the platform. It's up to you!
