"Hewlett-Packard Company (NYSE:HWP) today announced that it will ship the open source Ximian GNOME Desktop as the default desktop for HP-UX workstations after the release of HP-UX-11i. The partnership will offer HP customers a modern open source desktop environment, complete with a range of open source applications built for Linux. The Ximian GNOME Desktop is an enhanced, tested version of the open source GNOME desktop, making it easy to install, use and support. HP is adopting Ximian GNOME as an open standard to provide a common desktop for Linux and HP-UX."

"CDE, the current desktop environment for HP-UX, will continue to be supported by HP. In addition, HP will provide customers with tools and a migration path for customers who are interested in Ximian GNOME."

"Co-development between the two companies is already underway: Ximian and HP engineers are working closely together to meet HP-UX customers' specific requirements for functionality and stability. The Ximian GNOME Desktop will be available for download for HP-UX 11.0 and Linux workstations later this year. A demonstration will be conducted in the Ximian booth at LinuxWorld Conference and Expo."
