Gues what, there has never been a unit called EMS 5800,
but if I would use the real numbers, nobody in Germany
would know them. Shure, Xerox had a bunch of Software
and Hardware 'code'names and even more numbers and sales
names, and Viewpoint might be the correct sales name, but
using the term 'Star' and everybody knows (At least everybody
with a minimum brain^H^H^H^H^Hhistoric knowledge).

is a real nice picture about that :)
