 SAN JOSE, Calif., Aug. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Wyse Technology Inc. announced today that it will pre-install the Microsoft(R) Windows NT(TM) operating system on its entire family of client and server platforms, including symmetric multiprocessing server systems. The company will install and configure Windows NT for its Decision line of clients and Windows NT or Windows NT Advanced Server with its Series 6000i and Series 7000i database and application servers. In addition, Wyse will provide full service and support for the Windows NT-configured systems. Pricing for these models will be announced with availability with this quarter.
 "As an innovator in symmetric multiprocessing architecture, we're pleased that Windows NT is the first operating system that can fully harness the power of our flagship Series 7000i system, while providing users access to a wide range of shrink-wrapped applications," said Aziz Valliani, vice president and general manager of Wyse's Systems Division.
 "Wyse is one of the first vendors to offer Windows NT on an aggressively priced, five CPU system," said Paul Maritz, senior vice president of marketing for Microsoft. "In addition to being one of the first companies to provide a stable development platform for the SMP capabilities of Windows NT, Wyse's symmetric multiprocessing systems have demonstrated high reliability and scalable performance in our labs."
 Windows NT joins the major operating systems supported by Wyse. The entire line of Wyse systems has been tested and qualified for Windows NT, ensuring that customers can immediately run the retail version. As a Windows NT original equipment manufacturer (OEM), Wyse's bundled version of the operating system will support more CPUs than the retail version.
 One of the few companies authorized to distribute the beta release of Windows NT, Wyse will provide developers who purchased systems with the beta version through the company's Developer's Special program with a free upgrade to the final product. High technology companies using the Wyse Series 7000i multiprocessing system for Windows NT development include Banyan, DCA, Proteon and WordPerfect.
