Mugshot: Data General

Data General was a leading minicomputer maker.

Minicomputers used to be hot — really hot — from the late 1960s to the early 1990s. And one of the leading players then was Data General.

Unfortunately, the emergence of the microcomputer led to the demise of the minicomputer. Data General was late to hop onto the microcomputer and portable computer bandwagon, resulting in the company being acquired by EMC in 1999.

This mug was given out in the early 1990s at a Data General product launch in Singapore.
