    Default Federal Data Corporation

    I think I got the name right. In association with an issue of MS-DOS. Was or recently was on ebay. Can anyone provide some details. Is there hardware associated with that name?

    Yes. There is a Compaq Portable style system (the XAT) which was made (sold) by Federal Data Corporation. For the most part, Federal Data resold other systems from Televideo and Tandem; if https://www.gao.gov/assets/210/208815.pdf is to be trusted, the XAT replaced the originally planned Seequa hardware being sold through FDC.

    Edit: InfoWorld has a picture of it in the Feb 2, 1987 issue. Does not look like the Seequa design.
