"More companies have agreed to sell the Monterey-64 operating system, a new version of Unix targeted for the Merced chip, the leaders of the project will announce today.
Samsung will sell the new operating system--a combination of the Unix flavors from Santa Cruz Operation, IBM, and Sequent--that will arrive in 2000 with Intel's next-generation 64-bit chip, Merced, said Mike Foster, director of corporate marketing at SCO. While Samsung is a significant company, the largest share of Monterey-64 sales likely will come from bigger players such as IBM and Compaq.
In addition, Computer Associates, which sells software to help large companies keep track of all the computers in their networks, will create versions of its Unicenter TNG program for Monterey-64, Foster said. The announcements, along with new Linux services from SCO, will be made today at a SCO conference in Santa Cruz, California."
