Data General Corp wants to follow arch-rival DEC in providing support for Apple Computer Inc Macintoshes as terminals to its minis, and to that end has signed with Pacer Software Inc to supply the Westborough minimaker with a version of its PacerLink terminal emulation and communications software, which in the Mac version emulates the D461 Dasher terminal, enabling Mac users to access MV applications, including Comprehensive Electronic Office. Data General says it is keen to link the Mac not only to its Eclipse MV family of 32-bit minicomputers but also to its forthcoming Motorola 88000 RISC-based Unix processors. Data General is looking at both asynchronous terminal connections and local area network links, taking in Apple’s AppleTalk and AppleLink. The PacerLink software will be marketed by Pacer and will cost $2,000 for five concurrent sessions, up to $37,500 for 500 concurrent sessions.
