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.
