Amongst the companies exhibiting at this month’ MacWorld exhibition in Boston, Massachusetts was Berkeley, California based StarNine, a company founded by several members of the original A/UX development project. StarNine specialises in utilities for the Apple product, including the TOPS publishing system and Mac-like utilites for running under A/UX, such as A/UX <<=>> Mac, which uses a standard Macintosh dialogue box to allow you to copy from A/UX to Macintosh HFS volumes. The company’s latest product is a bridge betweeen Macintosh mail packages and Unix mail. StarNine has implemented an interface between the Macintosh QuickMail product developed by CE Software Inc with the standard Unix mail system, allowing mail to be sent transparently between the two systems. Other mail packages will be supported in the future, says StarNine. Company spokesman Rusty Rahl denied that the first release of A/UX was incomplete. A/UX is the most complete version of Unix ever released – but there are gaps in the system for those running A/UX and the Macintosh operating system – it is this area that we are addressing. Rahl predicted that many buyers were waiting for the next release of A/UX before making a purchase, and predicted that the next six months would see a large increase in orders for the Apple Unix.
