ALTOS

Fonte: WIKIPEDIA

Altos Computer Systems was founded in 1977 by David G. Jackson and Roger William Vass Sr. It focused on small multi-user computers, starting with multi-user derivatives of CP/M, and later including Unix and Xenix-based machines. In its 1982 initial public offering on NASDAQ, the company raised $59M. Thereafter the company's stock was traded under the symbol ALTO.[1]

Coming under increasing pressure from competitors in the server market, such as Compaq and Sun Microsystems, Altos posted a $5M loss (its first ever) in the fiscal year ending in June, 1989.[2] In the aftermath, Altos was acquired by Acer in 1990 for $94M,[3] although mostly for its US distribution channels rather than its technology.[2][4] Shortly before this acquisition, there were about 128,000 Altos systems installed throughout the world.[2]
