Computer Business Review
Andrew Heller, head of the division at IBM that developed the RS/6000, seems to have been one of those people whose faces don't fit at the company: he was stripped of his position as general manager of the workstation development group two years ago, and left the company the following March. After a spell as a consulting partner with Kleiner, Perkins, Caufield & Byers, he is ready to go head-to-head with IBM in some of its core markets such as airline reservation systems. According to the New York Times, he has founded Hal Inc - that name is likely to bring a stream of complaints from prior users - in Campbell, California, and the company is designing its own microprocessor - RISC presumably - around which to build high-performance Unix workstations and transaction processing machines. Heller claims that 30-employee Hal has financial backing and marketing support in place.
