By CBR Staff Writer

Mighty IBM is the latest company to bow to the supremacy of Adobe Systems Inc’s PostScript page description language and has signed with the Palo Alto, California company for licensing rights to the page description interpreter through its new IBM Publishing Systems Business Unit. IBM plans to use PostScript as one of the key foundation elements for its electronic publishing products. Other major computer, printer and typesetting manufacturers using PostScript include Agfa-Gevaert, Apollo Computer, Apple, Dataproducts, Diconix, DEC, ITT Qume, Linotype Co, NBI, NEC, QMS, Sun, Texas Instruments and Wang Laboratories and over 200 software publishers include Microsoft,, MicroPro, Lotus, Letraset and Aldus.
