Data General (DG) was a firm that made minicomputers and their operating systems. It was acquired by EMC. DG's main operating systems (OSs) were AOS-VS and DGUX. Both systems are in decline. As with other software in this situation, legacy system users still need aid and support, so users are working together to keep systems running.

- Wikipedia: Data General was one of the first minicomputer firms from the late 1960s. Three of the four founders were former employees of Digital Equipment Corporation. Their first product, the Data General Nova, was a 16-bit minicomputer. This used their own operating system, Data General RDOS, and in conjunction with programming languages like "Data General Business Basic" they provided a multi-user operating system with record locking and built-in databases far ahead of many contemporary systems. The Nova was followed by the Supernova and Eclipse product lines, all of which were used in many applications for the next two decades. The company employed an original equipment manufacturer sales strategy to sell to third parties who incorporated Data General computers into the OEM's specific product lines.
