February 25, 1988


By CBR Staff Writer

Microsoft Corp and Hewlett Packard Co have joined forces to implement Microsoft’s OS/2 LAN Manager for Unix servers, allowing distributed applications to run across OS/2 and Unix systems. The product, LM/X, will initially connect HP9000s with 80386 based personal computers micros with at least 2Mb memory and a hard disk, running Microsoft’s Unix System V/386 Release 3.2 the merged Unix/Xenix product. It will also be licensed to other manufacturers for transfer to their hardware and software platforms: Apricot, NCR, Nixdorf, Olivetti, Pyramid, Santa Cruz, Siemens and Wyse have already expressed an interest. LM/X will run over Token Ring, Ethernet, or Starlan networks and will also be ported to PC-Lan, NetBIOS, TCP/IP and ISO standards, and to the Unix V.3 sockets and transport level interface. It should be out early in 1989, with development kits ready by the end of 1988.
