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,

In God we trust; all others must provide data.
Opinions expressed are mine and mine alone.
If JCI had an opinion on this, they'd hire someone else to deliver it.
