Much more material than the fevered internal conflict clearly going on at IBM Corp is that the New York Times now reckons that Apple Computer Inc has signed preliminary agreements to license Mac OS not only to Motorola Inc, but to the Panasonic arm of Matsushita Electric Industrial Co, Pioneer Electronics Corp, FirePower Systems Inc, Ing C Olivetti & Co SpA, Power Computing Inc, Goldstar Co and Toshiba Corp: people close to the talks told the paper all of these companies are interested in selling Mac OS to run on machines based on the PowerPC microprocessor. In some cases only technical issues remain to be resolved – We believe the first machines not from Apple that will be running the Macintosh operating system will appear in the second half of 1995, said the guy in charge at Apple, Don Strickland.
