Contacts down in New Orleans at the Unix International annual members meeting, where reporters are barred, called in last week as our sister paper Unigram.X went to press to say that nothing substantive had happened yet that would move the industry further down the unity path. However, Unix International Inc chief Peter Cunningham, speaking from the dais, alluded to discussions that were being held at the highest levels and suggested that they were very close to some sort of agreement. He apparently promised that attendees at next year’s meeting would find themselves sitting next to representatives from Digital Equipment Corp, Hewlett-Packard Co, IBM Corp and other Open Software Foundation partners. Observers took away the implication of a combination or merger be-tween the two consortia. At the time, Software Foundation president David Tory, in attendance at the meeting, had yet to address the attendees. There are loud whispers that the future keeper of Unix, Novell Inc, is determined to put an end to all the two-camps nonsense.
