Omron Corp has combined with Motorola Inc to donate 40 of its 88000-based Luna 88K workstations to Carnegie-Mellon University, to be used for the development of a new version of the Mach distributed operating system Unix kernel: the 88K workstation comes with up to four 8800 RISC chips, and is claimed to deliver perforance of 100 MIPS; Omron’s share of the donation amounts to $1.3m and Omron is also sending three engineers to Carnegie-Mellon to assist with the development of ideogrammatic non-alphabetic versions of Mach and the company hopes that being in on the effort this early in the game will save considerable effort in conversion to a Japanese version of Mach at a later stage; the Mach kernel is the basis of the forthcoming OSF/1 implementation of Unix, due out in November from the Open Software Foundation.
