Nixdorf was eaten by Siemens 1990 to form Siemens Nixdorf 
Informationssysteme (SNI).

I worked for SNI in Munich in 1991-92 porting SVR4 (branded as SINIX) to 
a new 386-based multiprocessor system they were developing. I heard 
there was a MIPS-based system that used the same chassis under 
development at what had been Nixdorf in Paderborn.
