Symbolics Inc. was the premier producer of general-purpose computer systems for running and developing state-of-the-art object-oriented programs in Lisp. It designed and built workstations as well as writing a fully object-oriented operating system and development environment called "Genera" to run on those workstations.

Symbolics Technology, Inc. is a private company which has acquired the assets of the old public company called Symbolics, Inc. Now, Open Genera is available as a software product for DEC Alpha processors. For information on latest state-of-the-art products see the home page of Symbolics Technology Inc.
