"IBM is killing off Project Monterey, a joint venture with
The Santa Cruz Operation, while giving birth to a new OS. AIX
RL, a future Unix OS able to run on both Intel IA-64 and IBM's own
Power chip, will integrate Linux alongside some of the technologies
"At the same time, though, we're also focusing Linux on a brand
new market of people who might not know anything about AIX," said
Scott Handy, IBM's director for Linux solutions marketing, during a
technical session at this week's Solutions 2000 developers'
conference in Las Vegas."
"IBM's multifaceted moves to Linux go a long way toward opening
up the company's commercial code base. This is a far cry from the
IBM of old, which once teamed up with Hewlett-Packard and Digital
Equipment Corp. to create the Open Software Foundation (OSF), whose
sole purpose was to splinter Unix and protect its members'
respective proprietary OSes."
