ACORN CONSIDERS PLANS TO SAVE PC2

By CBR Staff Writer

Acorn Group Plc is talking to a number of parties who are interested in developing its proprietary desktop, the Risc PC 2, which the company announced it was abandoning last month (CI No 3,499). The Cambridge, UK company admitted to the talks after news leaked out about an approach to Acorn by a company called Applied Risc Technologies ART, headed by its former chief technical officer Peter Bondar. While guarded about details of talks, an Acorn official said: This is not the only proposal out there for that business. Under terms of the ART proposals, leaked to the Acorn Cybervillage web site, the company will sell machines from Acorn’s existing or committed inventory.
