As I mentioned elsewhere, I worked on software for them at Burroughs
('86-'89). I picked up a bunch of B25 stuff in '03, but I could never
find any software for them. In retrospect, I wish that I has stashed
away B25 (and B1000 (I was one of the last people in the office
supporting software on the B1000)) stuff, rather than return everything,
when I left the company.
