It's a machine based around a 64bit Alpha processor, rather than an Intel compatible processor. They were designed to run either Tru64 UNIX or OpenVMS rather than Windows. Lack of a graphics card is not totally unexpected, as UNIX machines don't really need them. It will NOT run PC software, as it's not PC compatible in any way.

You won't be able to get it to fold, as no folding client was ever released for either Tru64 or OpenVMS.

Does the machine still work even?
