WHO WANTS IT? CITRIX, FORMED BY FORMER IBM DEVELOPER, HAS MULTI-USER OS/2

By CBR Staff Writer

A multi-user version of OS/2 under development at Florida company Citrix Systems Inc, is being touted in some quarters as a challenger to Unix as it is expected to offer comparable capabilities at around a tenth of the price. Due to ship late this year or early next, it will be compatible with existing charcter-based OS/2 applications, and eventually graphical applications too. Citrix was founded a former member of the original OS/2 development team at IBM, and there is some suggestion that IBM itself might license technology in the future. IBM has said in the past that it intends to include multi-user capabilities in OS/2, though it has offered no timeframe, while Microsoft Corp says that it has no plans for developing a multi-user version itself.
