Summary:Company says it will award a free Integrity server to the owner of the oldest HP-UX installation in the country

HP has extended its hunt to find the oldest HP-UX installation in the UK.

The vendor has launched the competition to mark the fact that the operating system has now been around for 20 years.

The owner of the oldest system will win an entry-class Integrity server, a licence for HP-UX 11i v3, installation and a three-year Support Plus 24 Care Pack from HP. Everyone who enters the competition will receive a free 1980s retro console, which contains 101 arcade games.
