After the Sperry
merger, one of Unisys' favorite
slogans was "The Power of 2
". Am I the only one to see a connection
OK, on from conjecture to fact! Among other things, Unisys sells some rather average
Personal Computers (PCs). I didn't say "builds" because these boxes are actually made in the Far East
by Fujitsu, a corporation better known for producing cars than PCs.
However, they (Unisys) also built a fairly cool PC, mostly for the military. I don't know its model name, but
it became known as the Desert Storm PC. The case was made of steel and it would continue to function
after being dropped from a height of one meter (about three feet).
Unisys, or actually Sperry UNIVAC, built a series of mainframe computers called the UNIVAC Series 1100
(writeup on this later, I promise) running an operating system called OS 1100.
