Zenith Data Systems Inc has won such a good reputation – and so much business – in the US government market that it now wants to position itself to take a crack at the government Unix systems market. According to Microbytes Daily, the Glenview, Illinois company is preparing to announce a Unix supermicro that will support as many as 64 users. The machine is expected to be built around multiple 80386s and to run Xenix System V.386. It is expected to be packaged in the same housing as the company’s existing Z-248, and will be bid for an major US Air Force and Navy multi-user systems contract. It is not certain that Zenith will offer the machine commercially as well, but it would seem perverse not to do so. An 80286 lap-top with 20Mb or 40Mb disk running MS-DOS, OS/2 and Unix, and fitted with a backlit, Supertwist display is also in the Zenith works for April 19 launch.
