Chorus Systemes SA and Mitsubishi Electric Corp and its Apricot Computers Ltd UK subsidiary have joined the UnixWare Technology Group support organisation as sponsor and associate members respectively. In the meantime, Paris-based Chorus has kicked off a new programme called Shape your future now! which is designed to promote the benefits of microkernel strategies which includes training, consulting and support plus the Chorus/Mix microkernel itself in binary and source evaluation packages. The scheme is also available through Novell Inc’s Unix Systems Group. With partners, Chorus is gradually tailoring versions of its microkernel for a variety of markets, including fault-tolerance, telecommunications, process control, embedded systems and real-time – the latter effectively a picokernel it says. It is also working on a native Object Management Group-compliant Corba object layer for Chorus/Mix, which is part-funded by a European Esprit programme, called Chorus/Cool, using the Object Management Group Interface Definition Language. The company expects to have more real-time announcements in a month or two.
