The Open Software Foundation has announced the addition of five new members to its ranks – bringing total strength up to 76 – and is now closing in on its next major membership milestone of 100, according to Foundation president David Tory. Micro Focus Plc, MIPS Computer Systems Inc, Omron Tateisi Electronics Co, the Research Institute for Advanced Computer Science and Texas Instruments Inc are the latest companies and organisations to join the group – which now claims to have $130m of funding for the development of the user interface and OSF/1 alternative Unix operating system over the next three years. Somewhat surprising is the addition of Texas, which is working closely with Sun Microsystems on development of the Sparc RISC chip – Sun is committed to the rival AT&T-backing Unix International Inc club, of which Texas is also a member. Oracle Corp, Belmont, California, is another recent addition to the Open Software Foundation stable, but, like Texas, is hedging its bets in the Unix wars by joining Unix International at the same time.
