…AND SUNSOFT PLANS TO SUPPORT WINDOWS APPLICATIONS UNDER SOLARIS 2.0

By CBR Staff Writer

SunSoft Inc is going to support Microsoft Corp Windows 3.0 applications under its Solaris 2.0 Unix System V.4 implementation, according to SunSoft president Ed Zander, speaking at SunWorld Expo a couple of weeks ago. However, the company hasn’t decided whether support for the environment should be available as a third party offering or whether it should stick the technology into Solaris itself. Quorum Software Systems Inc, the Menlo Park, California outfit that has al ready done a version of its Compatibility Engine – enabling Apple Macintosh programs to run on RISCs – for Solaris, is currently negotiating terms with SunSoft to do a similar Windows product, saying it would be an easier job than the Macintosh version.
