Microsoft Corp has awarded Locus Computing Corp, Santa Monica, California a licence to bundle and sell MS-DOS 3.2 with its Merge 386 operating environment, which enables multiple MS-DOS tasks to run under Unix System V.3 on an 80386 machine. The licence, similar to one already awarded to Interactive Systems Corp and Phoenix Technologies Inc for their VM/ix product that offers comparable facilities, allows Locus to distribute MS-DOS with Merge 386 to OEM customers, distributors, value-added resellers and end-users, and avoids the need for them to go to Microsoft for separate licences. MS-DOS licences to be offered by Locus will be for two users (or one and a network connection), or for multiple users.
