Hitachi Ltd and Fujitsu Ltd are already jointly developing software to ensure future compatibility between their 32-bit personal computers with the aim of avoiding being overpowered in the 32-bit market in the way they were in the 16-bit market, where NEC has an overwhelmingly dominant market share: Hitachi took delivery of the Japanese version of OS/2, developed by Fujitsu, in July, to run on its 32-bit successor to the B16; Matsushita Electric Corp has also participated in the consortium in order to maintain compatibility with the 32-bit FMRs; its 16 bit machines are already Fujitsu FMR-compatible.
