Further Reading[edit]

Internally, ADP is rooted in Reality OS. no serious attempt has been made to change this since 1996. Reality OS has been emulated on top of Red Hat Linux.[1] ADP calls this emulation the Common Reality Architecture (CoRA, though there are references to it being RealityX when it was first ported to *nix). The relevant dealer services segment never sold anything but Reality-based products.[2]

Web Suite 1000, still uses the internal MV environment provided by Pick. The platform was originally targeted for VB but was migrated to PHP.[3]
