SunFlash - March 1995 - firstname.lastname@example.org
Sun Microsystems Computer Company (SMCC) announces the SPARC(R) Xterminal 1, an enhanced version of the SPARCclassic(TM) X X-terminal, and X Terminal Software Version 2.1, the third release of software supporting the SPARCstation X-terminal 1 hardware platform.
The SPARC Xterminal 1 features a new low-cost desktop package identical to the SPARCstation(TM) 4, the addition of a new built-in 8-bit color pixel- accelerating frame buffer, increased memory capacity to 8 MB standard expandable to 128 MB, 1280 x 1024 resolution monitor support, and both TurboGX(TM) and TurboGXplus(TM) acceleration configurations for up to 2.76 Xmarks of performance. The SPARC X-terminal 1 remains the industry's most innovative and is Sun's lowest priced network UNIX(R) desktop system.
Point-and-click administration tools with pop-up and pull-down menues, speed centralized administration by grouping classes of users. Superior networking through a 50-MHz microSPARC(TM) processor and a selection from three levels of graphic performance enhance application throughput.
The SPARC Xterminal 1 continues to be the industry's easiest X terminal to install. Just type one command and answer one yes/no question and install the terminal software effortlessly in just minutes. No other X terminal can claim the superior administration, installation, and performance of SPARC Xterminal 1.
