Soul of a New Machine

I'm citing the book Soul of a New Machine, by Tracy
Kidder, Atlantic Monthly Press, 1981.

It appears that all of the references to
proper nouns (company names, engineers, etc.)
are real. No disclaimer in my copy. Was
written by a journalist (probably use to
using real names -- funny topic here!).

Can someone confirm?

Company was Data General
Machine was the Eagle, a 32 bit mini
released in 1980
to compete with the DEC minis

Thanks in advance
