CHIYODA AND ACER TO DEVELOP COMMUNICATION SOFTWARE

By CBR Staff Writer

Chiyoda Joho Kiki – that’s Chiyoda Information Machines – is to develop, in conjunction with the Taiwanese Acer Corp, communication software to enable the Acer AX-standard AT-alike personal computer to link to Unix supermicros: the Unix machine in question is of course the Acer Counterpoint System 19K; although Acer now owns Counterpoint, it has few Unix skills, its forte being cheapo MS-DOS and OS/2 clones, so it is anxious for all the help it can get from Chiyoda, which was already the distributor for the 19K in Japan.
