Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"New Free Resource to Aid Linux and UNIX GUI Programmers."
"Imperial Software Technology (IST) today announced the launch
of a new Web site, www.motifdeveloper.com, a free resource for
programmers building graphical applications using the Motif toolkit
on the X Window System. Motif is the standard graphical
look-and-feel delivered with most versions of the UNIX operating
system, including Sun's Solaris, HP-UX, SGI Irix and IBM's AIX. Now
programmers working with Motif have a new expert resource to
consult for technical assistance and information.
Motifdeveloper.com is a completely revised version of the original
"Motif on the World Wide Web" (MW3) site founded by Ken Sall,
originally of Century Computing and now of Commerce One. The new
site will be regularly updated with hints and tips for Motif
programmers and will provide a Q&A service backed by IST's
technical support resources and specialist expert staff."
"Motif is the most successful graphical user interface toolkit
available for UNIX platforms," said Allen Brown, President and CEO
of The Open Group. "We support the provision of as much information
about Motif as possible and the motifdeveloper web is an excellent
example of that. This will have the dual benefit of increasing the
use of Motif and result in a growth in the number of applications
ultimately benefiting the end-user."
