Software AG, one of the original participants in The Open Group’s ActiveX-on-Unix development, dropped out of the PST process around six months ago, complaining the activity was moving far too slowly for its purposes. With Microsoft Corp’s blessing, Software AG’s already shipping DCOM-on-Unix ports of its own and has a mainframe implementation on the way. It claims that even if The Open Group is able to get anything out of the door by the end of the first quarter of next year – see separate story in Top Stories section – by that time it will already have between 5,000 to 8,000 installations of its product in the field. Software AG’s resigned to The Open Group’s ACD PST architecting ActiveX-on-Unix in such a way that it will have to do a maintenance release of its products to be compliant.
