Santa Cruz Operation Inc says it met with Compaq Computer Corp executives on Tuesday and secured guarantees that UnixWare will be Compaq’s preferred 32-bit Unix as well as its 64-bit Unix operating system of choice on volume platforms forever. SCO expects that Compaq’s next-generation Digital Unix release, Tru64 Unix, which is to run on Alpha and Intel, will be confined to enterprise and other high-end uses. There’s no suggestion that Siemens Nixdorf Information Systems Inc might be on the CeBit dais with SCO. SNI plumped for Solaris x86 in a Unix-on-Intel beauty contest saying UnixWare was not an option and that SNI wanted a partner with financial stability.
