Re: Intel's 16bit bus architecture that competed with VersaBus and VME
Yep, there was a system manufactured in HH by Northern Telecom - (The Project) Vienna system. It ran on 80286 (I was part of the European support group for the product based in HH during the mid-1980s). From memory it supported a maximum of 32 serially connected users on very little RAM. Originally it ran Xenix III (based on Unix System III). The last version was SysVR2.
The nice thing about working there was that we had access to the complete Xenix source code.
As for the pension fund, I was thinking about the other day .....
