Summary
  • Systems integrators are beginning to view X terminals as a possible response to the growing popularity of graphical user interfaces and Unix workstations, according to respondents to Systems and Network Integration magazine's 1992 integrator survey. Although interest is beginning to grow, respondents rated the importance of X terminals to their business at a low 3.86 on a scale of one to 10. One reason integrators often hesitate to implement X terminals is strong competition from Microsoft Corp's Windows graphical user interface. X terminals can be a more cost-effective solution than Windows running on a DOS-based microcomputer and make the Unix environment more user-friendly, but there is a severe shortage of commercial applications for the X terminal platform. X terminals are also beginning to face competition from AlphaWindows terminals, which bring windowing capabilities to ASCII terminals in the Unix environment.
