GST was a group of computer companies based in Cambridge, founded by Dr Jeff Fenton in June 1979 and were originally asked to produce an operating system for the Sinclair QL 68KOS.

In 2001 GST merged with eGames Europe as a new company, Greenstreet Software. It remains a developer and publisher of computer software for Windows operating systems. In July 2008 the company was reconstructed and now trades as Greenstreet Online Limited.
