Talk:Convergent Technologies Operating System
|WikiProject Computing / Software|
Believe the reference to Progress Software Corporation in this article may be in error. I am unable to verify if the Progress 4GL was also used by the US Coast Guard or not but my information is that the 4GL package used significantly by the USCG on their CTOS networks was Convergent Solutions Incorporated's ADS (Application Development System)
Madcat0607 (talk) 09:32, 21 April 2008 (UTC) The bit about who purchased the product from CT, i.e. Burroughs, Unisys, etc. Well - Burroughs merged with Sperry to become Unisys -so this is a bit confusing?
I can't see how this page gets to be in the "Univac" category at all. The Convergent O/s is more or less an offshoot of Digital's RSX, and has more in common with RTOS or Burroughs MCS transaction software than Univac. Burroughs used to OEM CTOS as BTOS -- Before the merger with Sperry (nee Univac). I was with Burroughs before the merger, at that time Sperry sold a DOS PC. After the Burroughs-&-Sperry merger, Unisys bought Convergent Technology and Unisys then sold CTOS (leaving 'BTOS' behind). William (talk) 22:55, 13 March 2010 (UTC)
