MANY companies were quite bad at making a go of the computer
business. Xerox is probably legendary, but GE and RCA were
certainly also famous for this. Honeywell made a LOT of
computers in various forms - aerospace, minicomputer,
industrial controls, etc. But, I guess they were
incompetent at competing with IBM in the large systems market.
They were included in the BUNCH, however.
