WANG DROPS PUBLISHING PLAN

By CBR Staff Writer

The plans of Wang Laboratories to push into the high-end integrated electronic publishing via an OEM deal struck up in September 1986 with Sun Microsystems Inc, looks to have faltered with the demise of the main software partner, Texet Corp of Arlington, Massachusetts, early in July. Wang intended to sell a package in which Sun-3s, supporting the composition software from Texet, would be linked via Ethernet to a Wang VS computer acting as a host and communications server (CI No 533). But the package, originally intended to be launched by the end of last year, was delayed for technical reasons, and according to Computer Systems News, was cancelled late last month following a re-think of Wang’s strategy. Texet issued a statement saying it had shut up shop due to a lack of working capital: the source code for the Texet software has been bought by Compugraphic Corp of Wilmington, Massachusetts, which had an investment in the company.
