G'day Robert -
The DG/500 was a nice upgrade from Data General's Desktop Generation
systems, including a PC-type form factor and a 30% speed improvement. Rev
3.0 of DG/RDOS runs on the /500 as well as the Desktop Generation systems.
Perhaps the most high profile use of these venerable systems has been at
NAPA auto parts dealers throughout the country. The TAMS application ran on
multiple terminals in dirty, grimey, hot, cold and indifferent environments
every day of the year.
Most of the meager amount of DG information on these systems is on
microfiche at this point but I will contact you off list with further
