OS/3 FROM IBM OR SPERRY ?

By CBR Staff Writer

The statement that IBM would have a version of OS/2 specifically tailored to the 80386 and called OS/3 (CI No 839) was attributed to an IBM representative – but if the company really plans to give the thing that name, it could turn into a case of the biter bit: IBM has been flailing its arms around saying that if anyone so much as borrows a letter from the name of a PS/2 product, he could find himself in deep water, but doesn’t anyone at the company know that the Sperry side of Unisys has had an operating system called OS/3 for simply ages?
