XVCPI support in Interactive Unix[edit]

Does someone have any information (announcements, documentation, or other bits) in regard to XVCPI (Extended Virtual Control Program Interface) support in Interactive Unix since ca. 1989? This was apparently a parallel effort to DPMI to enable the full memory management and multitasking capabilities of the 386 in which Intel, Digital Research, Interactive Systems and other parties seem to have played a role. Very little is known about this, so if you know anything about it, your comments or contributions to the VCPI article or talk page would be highly welcome. Thanks. --Matthiaspaul (talk) 12:06, 28 May 2013 (UTC)

Proposed merge with Interactive Unix[edit]

The page on ISC already covers the predecessor PC/IX, and merging them avoids notability problems. QVVERTYVS (hm?) 14:25, 15 February 2014 (UTC)

  • Well, neither PC/IX nor Interactive Unix (386/ix) have wp:notability problems. There are sufficient sources for the latter too. Just in Infoworld (which has a deal with Google that gives full free access to old issues in GB) one can find [1] [2] and more minor articles discussing bundling: [3] [4] [5] [6]. There's surely more in other old publications. But since ISC mostly made Unix products it's probably a good idea to put the present info on single page rather than in 2-3 stubs. If this page gets too long WP:SPINOFFs can be considered, but we're pretty far from WP:SIZE issues at the moment. Someone not using his real name (talk) 16:45, 15 February 2014 (UTC)


Lotus 1-2-3[edit]

That info seem a little dubious because the first unix version of 1-2-3 ran on SCO (i.e. on the main competition's product) with the 386/ix version coming later per [9]. Someone not using his real name (talk) 17:01, 16 February 2014 (UTC)

I agree with the {{cn}} but note that, according to the article, "former ISC staff founded Segue Software which partnered with Lotus Development to develop the Unix version of Lotus 1-2-3" (emphasis added) — it wasn't ISC itself. QVVERTYVS (hm?) 10:57, 19 February 2014 (UTC)
