Adobe Acrobat, first released in 1993, is a tool for creating portable electronic documents. Its documents retain complex formatting when used across differing systems, so that they appear identical when viewed on screen or printed to a printer. Acrobat accomplishes this by encapsulating Adobe's PostSript printer language in to a document file format and offering the ability to embed fonts that are not present on the target system.

AppleWorks is an all-in-one Word Processor, Spreadsheet, Database, Graphics Editor, and Presentations tool. The original product was a text-based product for the Apple II. The Apple Macintosh and Windows versions were forked from ClarisWorks in 1998 by Apple. At the time, Apple was under a lot of pressure to have a direct alternative to Microsoft Office. There were serious concerns that Microsoft might pull Microsoft Office for the Macintosh from development.

AT&T UNIX System V ("System Five"), first released in 1983, is significant as it was one of the first commercial versions of the Unix operating system. It was the result of much collaboration between vendors and became the core basis for many other operating systems including Xenix, AIX, UnixWare, Solaris, and HP-UX.

AutoCAD, from Autodesk and first released in 1982, is a powerful Computer Aided Design tool. It was, and still is, often considered the standard for CAD tools. Primarily for the IBM PC platform, it was ported to x86 machines with higher video resolutions such as the Zenith Z-100 and NEC APC. Intermittently, versions for the Macintosh appeared. Later versions use a dongle copy protection.

First released in 1984, Banyan VINES (Virtual Integrated NEtwork Service) was a network operating system originally designed for Unix, initially based on Xerox XNS. It was considered fairly lightweight both on clients and servers and used minimal bandwidth. It featured an early directory services system prior to either Novel or Microsoft.

Borland Enterprise Server was Borland's Java EE Application Server. The product was developed in 1999 within the team of former Visigenic company that was acquired by Borland in 1997. Borland's Java Studio was supposed to have BES and JBuilder tightly integrated, but in reality this integration never happened. BES suffered compatibility problems even with Borland's own products (JDataStore, OptimizeIt). The appearance of free commercial grade (and more mature) application servers, like JBoss, made BES unattractive and unable to really compete with the former.

DEC OSF-1 was a version of UNIX from DEC built on the Mach kernel. It was first developed for MIPS based DECStations, and then ported to 64-bit DEC Alpha (AXP). It was later renamed to Digital Unix, and then again to True64 Unix.


Icon

Dell Unix, first introduced in 1989, was an adaptation of AT&T Unix intended for Dell hardware. Although Dell Unix received much praise, Dell found they could not reasonably support it on non-Dell hardware, as many customers wanted, and in 1993 discontinued it.


Icon

Formerly OSF/1, in 1994 after the Open Software Foundation (run by DEC, IBM, and HP) ceased involvement, Digital Equipment Corporation renamed the OS to "Digital UNIX". In 1998, DEC was bought out by Compaq and the product was again renamed, to Tru64 UNIX.

Firefox is a web browser based on the open source Mozilla web browser. It was intended to be lighter weight and faster than Mozilla, separating the e-mail client in to the new Thunderbird product. At release, it implemented better support for web standards than Microsoft Internet Explorer. Firefox included features such as tabbed browsing and support for add-ons.

FoxBASE, a relational database from Fox Software, started off in 1984 as a clone of dBase II that boasted many speed improvements. FoxBASE+ adds feature parity and compatibility with dBase III Plus. It was later aquired by Microsoft and became FoxPro


Icon

FoxPro, originally from Fox Software and later Microsoft, is a relational database that clones the functionality of dBase IV, but offers vast speed improvements. It was based on Fox Software's FoxBASE (a dBASE II clone) and FoxBASE+ (a dBase III Plus clone). It adds a new mac-like user interface that was first developed for FoxBASE+/Mac.

HP-UX is a Unix variant based off of System III, later System V Unix. Released in 1984, the initial version of HP-UX supported the Motorola 68k processor family, specifically the HP 9807A, the "HP Integral PC". This OS is still updated, with its latest being version 11i. Platforms that HP-UX have ran on were the Motorola 68k, RISC, HP FOCUS, and the Itanium family of Intel processors. HP-UX was the first UNIX to provide access control lists (acls), logical volumes, features that are currently supported by newer mainstream Operating Systems. HP-UX versions before 11.0 are not deemed as being Y2k-compliant by HP.
