"Sun Microsystems has further loosened its grip on its
Network File System (NFS) protocol which the Internet Engineering
Taskforce (IETF) is turning into an industry standard.
Sun is releasing the sourcecode for a key component of the
protocol and doubled the level of funding it began last year for an
independent development of a Linux implementation of NFS version 4
- the version the IETF is making an industry standard protocol.
The component, called the transport independent remote procedure
call (TI-RPC), will be available free to developers at Sun's
website. NFS is used to enable NFS-supporting multivendor platforms
to share, receive and send files."
