UNIX INTERNATIONAL CONFIRMS THAT OPEN LOOK WILL BE ITS USER INTERFACE

By CBR Staff Writer

As briefly reported, Unix International came out with an endorsement for the AT&T Open Look user interface at Uniforum, saying that it chose the system after an evaluation of the graphical user interface issue in which it claimed more than 20 companies with Unix System V-based products took part. The announcement caused little surprise amongst journalists present at the news conference despite rumours that the organisation was considering a rejection of the product, which was jointly developed by AT&T and Sun Microsystems Inc. However Unix International president and chief executive officer Peter Cunningham said that other user interfaces would be evaluated as they become established in the marketplace for appropriateness on top of Unix System V, and that a standard X Window System-based architecture would be chosen to enable support for multiple user interfaces. Open Look and Unix System V will be maintained as separate products with separate licensing terms, through the directive of Unix International.
