I vaguely recall reading a book years ago about the history
of Data General or Digital Equipment Corporation or both. Do
any of you recall such a book? I am interested in learning more
about Data General and their products. I'd appreciate any help
you could offer with this.

A book that touches a little bit on this subject is "The Soul of a New Machine"
by Tracy Kidder. It's primary subject is the team that designed the Eagle
supermini from Data General (it was their answer to DEC's VAX line) but it
covers a little bit of the history of DG and DEC as well.

It's an excellent read, BTW.

Have fun,

If JCI had an opinion on this, they'd hire someone else to deliver it.
