The Open Software Foundation maintains that a number of its member companies – none of them identified – are approaching a point where they could introduce a product running its OSF/1 alternative Unix. I’m having trouble reigning them in, says business area manager Marie Burch. The Foundation also expects to have a swot of third-party applications packages available when the operating system makes its scheduled appearance in November because of the work currently being done in its portability lab. And the Foundation has stripped its chairman Hewlett-Packard Co systems technology sector vice president John Doyle – of his vote on the the Foundation board, although he retains his current post following re-election: Doyle is replaced by William Kay as Hewlett-Packard’s voting representative on the board – he comes from the company’s workstation group; the switch means that Doyle is now intended to act strictly as an impartial chairman DEC has also replaced its former representative, Donald McInnis, with Kurt Friedrich from its open software group – McInnis left DEC to join Prime Computer Inc in May.
