Comment: 

The latest Cray supercomputers are 2000-compliant, says Cray. Older systems will not be supported.

In short, "Buy one of our new systems, and work hard to port your old data."

* * * * * * * *

Older Cray platforms (not listed above) will not have supported operating system releases in the year 2000. This includes CRAY Y-MP (Model D), CRAY EL (CRAY Y-MP/EL), CRAY X-MP, CRAY-2, and CRAY-1 systems. These retired systems will not be supported with Year 2000 compliant software releases.

Customers with CRAY T90, CRAY C90, and CRAY J90 platforms should upgrade to the UNICOS 10.0 operating system in 1998 or 1999 to prepare for Year 2000 compliance. UNICOS 9.1, 9.2, and 9.3 releases on these platforms are not Year 2000 compliant. . . .

Year 2000 support does not apply to retired products and features. Bugs in retired software, such as date display errors or improper leap-year calculations, will not be fixed. This includes operating systems, compilers, libraries and asynchronous products.
