…AS BILL GATES PROMISES NT BY YEAR-END, OBJECT LINKING 2 IN 1993

By CBR Staff Writer

Microsoft Corp’s New Technology operating system, expected to go into beta test this month (CI No 1,843) will now not be put into the hands of end users until July, Bill Gates told information systems managers and journalists at a computing debate in London yesterday. NT, which Gates said conforms with Posix and X/Open Portability Guide 3 standards, will ship at the end of this year. At the symposium, Are You Prepared for IT?, hosted by Zenith Data Systems, Gates spoke out on object programming, saying he thought the concept was just another hype that extends far beyond the reality available today – having said that, he said to look out for Microsoft’s Object Linking and Embedding 2.0 during 1993, saying he was all for any technology that will enable the economical re-use of parts of programs.
