RetroNET, also known as The NABU Preservation Group, started in December 2022 to preserve the NABU Corporation's legacy that began in the 1980s.
The NABU Corporation filed for bankruptcy in 1986. Today, our effort is to continue development toward the company's dream of having NABU Personal Computers connected to a worldwide network.

There is no legally registered entity behind The NABU Preservation Group. Enthusiasts, fans, and ex-NABU employees of the original NABU Corporation personally founded and maintained this group. The goal of the preservation group is to continue the development of the NABU Corporation's pursuit of network-connected NABU Personal Computers. At a young age, during NABU's hype on the Canadian public stock market, DJ Sures was told by his father and uncles, who had worked for NABU, that one day he would be able to talk to friends, order flowers, or pay bills with the NABU network from his sofa on the family TV. While this capability is mainstream today, it was science fiction in 1981 when the NABU Network development began, and stories like that are the backbone of our efforts.
Continuing with the original vision, the community and founders of the NABU Preservation Group are giving new life to an almost 50-year-old computer.
