Having sorted out its artificial intelligence efforts (CI No 603), Unisys Corp has moved to make sense of its Unix interests, and, not too surprisingly given the commitment made by each of the constituents, Sperry’s Unix base in Salt Lake City, Utah, where the company also manufactures its terminals, comes out on top. The old Burroughs engineering and devlopment operation set up in Downington, Pennsylvania to handle the XE500 version of Convergent Technologies’ Megaframe and its successor products will be transferred to Salt Lake City, over the next six to nine months, and some employees will be offered transfers – if they can face a dry life in the desert. The XE500 will be integrated into Sperry’s array of Unix personals, supermicros and minis, but XE500 manufacturing, in Liege, Belgium, will be unaffected.
