Santa Cruz Operation Inc reckons that Network Computers should use iAPX-86-compatible processors and run a skinny version of Unix, and to that end it has pulled all the pieces not wanted on voyage out of its Unix and filleted it down to 1.5Mb to create NC/OS, the Network Client Operating System, which is available to manufacturers and integrators now. NC/OS combines the 1.5Mb Unix with TCP/IP networking, Netscape Communications Corp’s Navigator client software, and Java environment. The only manufacturer cheerleading for the development so far is Unisys Corp, which does not actually go so far as to say it will use it.
