Hope they're working on it.

I don't think so, unless HP added a PA-9000 processor when I wasn't 

HP 9000/xxx is the standard designation for HP's HP/UX-based PA-RISC 
machines.  Their other line is the HP 3000 series, which run some other 
mutant OS (as if HP/UX wasn't bad enough already...)

Pretty much any current non-PC HP box you'll see will be from the HP 9000 

Right now I have access to two 9000/715s, a 9000/720, and a 9000/819/K200.

actually figuring out what you've got.

Unfortunately, it's really hard to distinguish models by just their 
internal HP number (e.g. "819") these days, unless you're an HP guru or 
seller...  Their web site is pretty much useless (poorly organized, too...)
