Altos Computer Systems has signed an OEM agreement to supply Systime Computers Ltd with its 80386-based Series 2000 machines. The contract is for an initial three year period and Systime is expected to sell ar-ound UKP3m of Altos machines in the first year. Systime, almost wholly owned by Control Data Corp, will also become a European beta test site for Altos and Altos will incorporate Systime software into its product range. Altos already markets the Systime Trans-Basic DEC PDP-11-to-Unix conversion product and the two companies say that the idea of some sort of partnership stems from these discussions. Systime says that this agreement will not affect its in-house Intel-based product line, the Series 2 and 3, but will serve to complete its offerings in the eight to 64 workstation multi-user systems market.
