    I think HP still had some systems with it. It was an interesting architecture when introduced, its called EPIC and is like VLIW, but it requires much from the compiler. The architecture was criticized for being slower than x86 when emulating the x86 architecture which was kind of unfair.
    I don't know if it was just a bad idea, or if EPIC/VLIC has some merit and might be a good idea, either way its pretty dead even if it was interesting.
