This is the recovered Machine Room from 2005. Please don't expect wonders. The look and feel of this site is nine years
old, and so is its code. Some of the functionality has been recovered while the rest of
the site is modernised and restructured. Watch this space!
Sirius is a smallish British company with one major product, an
advanced office computer. The machine was marketed in the US by
Victor as the Victor 9000. The Sirius 1 and Victor 9000 came out
just as IBM was beginning to produce the IBM PC and so these
powerful machines weren't PC compatible. I believe you can fill in the
ending of this story yourselves.
Many people refer to the Sirius 1 as an ACT computer, but I'm not entirely sure what the relation between ACT and Sirius Systems was. I've certainly seen references to the Sirius 1 as produced by both companies. Until this is resolved, I'm leaving this company here, but the entry for the ACT Sirius 1 is under the ACT page.
