NINE COMPANIES TO SUPPORT INDUSTRY STANDARD FOR ENGINEERING WORKSTATIONS – BUT IN WHAT AREA?

By CBR Staff Writer

Nine workstation companies, Apollo Computer Inc, Applix Inc, Dana Computers Inc, Data General Corp, Hewlett-Packard Co, Masscomp, Siemens AG, Sony Corp, and Stellar Computer Inc are coming together at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology tomorrow to support an emerging industry standard for engineering workstations – but in what area? Our guess, on very slender evidence, is that it might have something to do with windowing standards, where the leading rivals are Sun Microsystems’ NeWS and X Windows, which was designed at MIT.
