NCR Corp is also betting its Unix graphical interface stategy on the X Window System, and will use the Uniforum Unix show as the launch venue for Towerview, a new range of intelligent X terminals. The company has licensed Cambridge-based IXI Ltd’s X.desktop graphical user interface to bundle in with the new 680X0-based terminals, which can be connected to NCR Tower or other Unix-based systems via network or RS232 channels. The company hopes that the move will boost exposure of non-technical, commercial users to distributed applications software using X Window, and endorses the similar approach to multi-user graphics pioneered by companies such as Network Computing Devices Inc (CI No 1,006) and Acer Counterpoint Inc (CI No 1,083); systems are currently on trial at key NCR customers.
