    Powerful, inexpensive processors, low-cost storage, and high-resolution color displays make single-user, networked, multiprogrammed computer workstations suitable replacements for the time-shared mainframe environment of the scientific and engineering professional. Distributed processing via networks of workstations connected to larger server machines, which are in turn connected to national and i... View full abstract»

    In the early 1980's, large computing systems became capable of supporting response times of 300 ms for transactions consisting of 500,000 instructions. In interactive environments this produced an unexpectedly large (±100 percent) increase in the productivity of scientists, engineers, and programmers. An investigation of the findings by cognitive researchers led to a reconciliation of the product... View full abstract»

    Typical computer workstations employ window managers for creating, destroying, and arranging windows on the screen. Window managers generally follow either a desktop metaphor, allowing windows to overlap each other like sheets of paper on a desk, or they use a tiling model, arranging each window with a specific size and location that avoids overlap. Desktop models allow for the most layout freedom... View full abstract»

    This article describes WHIM, the Window Handler and Input Manager, a window management system being developed as part of the QuickSilver operating system project at IBM's Almaden Research Center. Another version of WHIM runs under AIX on the IBM PC RT. This article contrasts and compares the overlapped window scheme used in WHIM with the tiled window scheme used in other systems. The advantages of... View full abstract»

    This article describes a system that allows a reduced-function workstation, an Apple Macintosh, to perform as a low-end node in an Apollo Domain workstation network. Programs that run in the Apollo environment do not have to be modified to be accessed from the Macintosh; the appropriate system subroutines are intercepted and recast into a suitable form. Each Apollo workstation can support from two... View full abstract»

    This articles summarizes the work at SIGMEX Systems Limited from its origin in 1982 just prior to the publication of the draft of the International Graphics Standard, GKS. This article covers the original concept of the GKS workstation as defined in the Standard, its realization, the practical implications, and the real-world application of the resulting intelligent workstation device.
