company A company making workstations often used for CAD.
From 1980 to 1987, Apollo were the largest manufacturer of
network workstations. Apollo workstations ran Aegis, a
proprietary operating system with a Posix-compliant Unix
alternative frontend. Apollo's networking was particularly
elegant, among the first to allow demand paging over the
network, and allowing a degree of network transparency and
low sysadmin-to-machine ratio that is still unmatched.
