Why is it that Wang equipment is not seen available very often? I
just find it interesting that you rarely see many people on the list
discussing Wang mini's or Wang workstations. I had the opportunity
back in 1991 to install a Novell NACS (Async Comm Server) to a Wang mini
so that the company that had it could replace the Wang terminals with
PC's running the remote connectivity client and still continue
connecting to the Wang mini.
Reading from an early '80's VS brochure:
"From individual specialized systems design (1951-1964), to the first desktop
programmable calculators (1964-1972), to the Company's state-of-the-art
family of data processing and word processing office systems, Wang has been
a pioneer in the high technology electronics industries."
"As the leading supplier of CRT-based word processing systems, and the
number two supplier of small business computing systems, Wang Laboratories
carries its reputation proudly into the 1980's"
Maybe the name causes problems with porn filters...
