The Paymaster General’s Office has ordered 92 DRS Model 30 workstations from ICL Ltd, which says they are functionally compatible with the IBM PS/2 Model 30 – probably the least desirable box in IBM’s line with which to liken yours, but are claimed to offer a higher resolution video graphics array video system: the DRS workstation runs MS-DOS Version 3.3 and can be part of a DRS Series 300 Microlan 2 network, or can be connected directly into ICL’s mid-range computers, the DRS 400 and DRS 500; all DRS server systems support Open Systems networking, but with an integral Microlan 2 network, the DRS 30 can also emulate Model 303 and 305 dumb workstations, providing access to both departmental and corporate services, and to applications running under Unix, Concurrent DOS, and ICL’s mainframe VME.
