TOUCHSTONE SOFTWARE TO SUPPLY EMULATION SOFTWARE TO FORD MOTOR

By CBR Staff Writer

In what seems to be the first recorded case of a user converting from Unix to OS/2, TouchStone Software Corp, Seal Beach, California reports that it has a companywide agreement from Ford Motor Co to supply emulation software that supports both Fortune Systems terminals and IBM PS/2 systems as part of a two to three year network changeover at Ford: under the pact, TouchStone is providing unlimited use rights to an enhanced version of its PCworks software to enable Ford to maintain the full value of its Fortune 32:16 Unix systems and terminals while gradually replacing them with IBM PS/2 workstations.
