IXI TRAWLS FOR DEC USER SUPPORT, READIES NEW DESKWORKS TOOLSET

By CBR Staff Writer

Angling for the deal it has sought for some time now, IXI Ltd of Cambridge, UK is starting to cast groundbait all over the water in an attempt to land its catch. It’s offering all organisations using DECstations a free single-user copy of its X.desktop manager (which runs under all Digital Equipment Corp operating systems). However, it seems IXI may have to get down into the water to try and tickle this baby out of the flow, as DEC has its own problems to iron out. IXI sales and marketing director Anil Malhotra rather cryptically observes that DEC is having difficulty finding its centre of gravity. IXI, meanwhile, is to release the next iteration of its graphical user interface manager, X.desktop 3.5, in June. It is also to begin casting its nets in other waters when it adds a line of productivity tools under the name Deskworks, also in June, something it has long been talking about.
