Following its recent acquisition of Parallel Computers, General Automation Inc has said that it will not be the last. In the short term the two companies will not merge their product lines but next year the Pick operating system will be put onto the Parallel fault-tolerant processor and become a Zebra.

Additionally General Automation says that it has no plans to switch horses to Unix, but will remain predominantly a Pick-popper.
