WHATEVER BECAME OF WABI? SUNSOFT IS STILL PLOUGHING ON WITH IT

By CBR Staff Writer

SunSoft Inc is still persevering with its Wabi desktop metaphor-on-Unix environment, which now provides full support for 24 Windows applications on Solaris. Support for Windows95 applications is planned in a 3.0 version of the translation software, due this time next year. Meantime the company last week unveiled a server implementation as WabiServer which enables low-end Sparc systems and X terminals, previously unsupported by Wabi, to act as clients. It also provides central management of Windows applications running within Solaris environments. WabiServer costs $1,000 for the user licence and $1,000 for a 10-user client pack. At $100 per client, SunSoft compares this with Tektronix Inc’s WinDD, at $352 per user, and HP500 Windows Application Server, which uses Locus Merge, at $267 per user. In addition to Wabi, it offers Insignia Solutions Ltd’s SoftPC as SunPC, Insignia’s SoftWindows, Locus Merge and the Macintosh Application Environment, which runs Mac applications on the Sparc.
