Intel Architecture how does it differ ?

Alpha is a CPU previously made by Digital. It was a high end workstation chip that ran Unix and some versions of Windows NT. Intel is the guardian of the "x86" architecture (Pentium, etc.) which is the most popular CPU architecture in use today. The Alpha was a slick chip, and had some pluses in Unix, but to my knowledge it is very hard to find today. The Intel x86 architecture, while not as high performing, was and is far more widespread and is compatible with all kinds of software.
