Re: Hardware Descriptions

PC Planning: We're still planning to do the frontend under Windows for
the PC as one of our first frontends. The only network protocol we
can guarantee we'll support the first time out is TCP/IP. We should
not say we're going to do a DOS version of the backend till we know
how terrible it will be, and the extent to which OS/2 is dominating
the market in high-end server platforms by the time we could ship
a DOS backend--it seems like at least an even bet that OS/2 will 
control that market segment before we could get a DOS version out
(the Lotus Notes server is only an OS/2 product, which is rather 
suggestive to me).
