In an announcement from Stratham, New Hampshire, the 88open Consortium Ltd not-for-profit organisation of companies and individuals planning to manufacture, develop, sell or use products based on the new Motorola 88000 reduced instruction set microprocessor said yesterday that 28 companies had now joined the consortium – but the big names are the ones that have already declared – the likes of Stratus Computer, Data General, Tektronix, Convergent Technologies, Encore Computer: among the more obscure ones are Absoft Corp, Auburn Hills, Michigan; AItech, Sunnyvale, California; Bell Northern Research, Ottawa, Canada (neither small nor obscure but outside the computing mainstream and planning to use the 88000 in telephone switching systems); Flashpoint Computer Corp, McLean, Viginia; Golden Triangle Computers, San Diego; Incremental Systems Corp, Pittsburgh; Language Processors Inc, Framingham, Massachusetts; Oasys Inc, Waltham, Massachusetts; and Software Components Group, Santa Clara, California; in the US, our Integrated Micro Products in Consett, County Durham, and Tadpole Technology Plc, Cambridge would be regarded as pretty obscure too, but there may still be other big names waiting in the wings, because only 21 have so far allowed their names to go out as members.
