GATTON SYNTHESIS BRINGS LOW COST WINDOWING TO AS/400 USERS IN THE UK

By CBR Staff Writer

Gatton Synthesis Ltd, subsidiary of Redhill, Surrey-based Gatton Consulting Group, is to market a range of interface software that complies with IBM’s Common User Access element of Systems Applications Architecture on the AS/400. The software was developed by AS/3X, a company set up in Boston, Massachusetts some 20 months ago (CI No 1,432). Gatton intends to concentrate initially on QuickWindows, which provides windowing capabilities on the AS/400, and makes a dumb terminal look like a PS/2 to the user. Gatton isn’t slow to point out that the cost of a terminal is a fraction of a the price of PS/2, and copies of Quicksilver are UKP550 per system. The software should also be of interest to IBM, and the is gossip that that AS/400 boffins have been haunting recent Unix exhibitions in the US to learn more about graphical user interfaces with a view to offering a more complete graphical offering for the AS/400.
