Winix Network, an information handling system that allowed to share common data and software resources efficiently over local networks (LAN) and wide area networks (WAN) using Internet, TCP/IP standard, IEEE 802.2 Ethernet and ms-WINdows/unIX.
A Winix workstations could also be connected to the server over a telephone network by asynchronous serial communication through a modem or over a PABX (Private Automatic Branch Exchange). Winix was based on SAA/CUA, System Application Arch itecture/Common User Access, an interface design standard introduced by IBM. The system offered the advantage of an MS Windows graphic user interface to both MS-Windows/DOS applications and the networking and computer power of a UNIX system.
Winix also gave conference and mail services locally as well as to other LANs and remote Winix workstations. A powerful programmable emulator transformed personal computers into terminals to remote and local computers and databases.
Winix Toolkit, an easy to use high-level graphical language for MS Windows application programming, bridging to C and Pascal, useful for rapid prototyping and application development. Winix was designed as an open system.
