By CBR Staff Writer

Used computer dealers in the US are resigned to a heavy writedown of the value of their stocks of used Wang VS machines following Wang Laboratories’ announcement that it would, from July 1, unbundle the operating system from the hardware and charge for a new licence every time a machine changes hands or a user upgrades an existing one (CI No 930).
