Although the new Bull SA products are intended only for the Bull European markets, which do not include Italy and the UK where the existing XPS systems will continue to be sold, the two companies took the opportunity to announce formally a joint company named X3S for Socie’te’ Internationale de Syste’mes Standards. First mooted at the end of last year, the new venture has as its mission the provision of a single line of Unix products, likely to be announced within 18 months and two years according to Bruno Fonpaine. The agreement does not involve NEC, which has a separate deal to converge its mainframe systems with Honeywell Bull.
