MICROPORT SYSTEMS BEGINS SHIPPING SYSTEM V/386

By CBR Staff Writer

One small step for a man… At 12.01 yesterday morning – Pacific Daylight Time, presumably, Microport Systems Inc, Scotts Valley, California began shipping System V/386 – to insomniacs, no doubt, and claims that the product is the first commercially available Unix for the Intel 80386 microprocessor: commercially available appears to mean that users can go out and buy it, since vendors have been shipping 80386 systems with Unix on them for some weeks; the company offers a System V/386 Runtime Package, Software Development, Text Processing and Streams networking packages – all to run on 80386 AT-alikes; source costs $25,000 to qualified customers, and a bundled Runtime System with media support, documentation and 90-day warranty is $199; first to get it is Harris-Lanier.
