In general the number of soft and hardware suppliers
are decreasing. A big shake out takes place during the starting nineties.
The users-trend goes more towards multi-media appliances, a combination of pictures, sound and databases of all sorts.
CD-I (CD inter-active) does not only have a fixed
place in the computer-training's but also in the amusement world.
Especially, the bulky games (most adventure games) are profiting from
the bigger storage capacity of the CD-ROM (± 650 Mb). This gives this
medium a great boost and the supply increases tenfold.
Technology which was first only available for big companies can now be acquired by small companies: DAT tape drives, hard discs of 1 G or more, CD-WORM discs etc.
