Apple Computer Inc announced the first shipments of MacX 2.0, an enhanced version of its X Window system for Mac OS computers. Designed for Mac users working in Unix and Digital Equipment Corp VMS environments, MacX enables networked-based X applications and Mac OS applications to be run on a Mac OS computer. Version 2.0 supports X Version 11 Release 6.1, and has been optimized for use with Apple’s Open Transport communications architecture. It runs on any Mac OS computer with 68030 or higher, or any PowerPC-based systems running Mac OS 7.1 or higher. Access to Unix or VMS is via Direct Ethernet or Token Ring. Localtalk bridged to Ethernet is also required. Out immediately in the US and Canada, MacX 2.0 costs $150, or $90 for upgrades.
