I worked on this computer in the 80s in a french government ministry where it was used for word processing and custom applications based on the Informix database.
French ambassies either had Micromegas (for large ones) or Bull PC clones (for the small ones) that would enable them to run the software we wrote based on the Informix database, as this RDBMS was available on Unix (Micromega) and MS-DOS (Bull Micral 30).
That was portability and was not so frequent by these days.
The Micromegas worked well, even if made of low quality plastic case. It used a very old version of Unix, "version 7" (v7 came before System III, the ancestor of System V, the first "modern" Unix). The Operating System would display "Thomson Micromega" but having a deeper look at system files, you would find many comments with "Fortune systems".

Does anyone know if this is the same Thomson company that supplies Microsoft with XBox CD ROM Drives?
