PC Week: Oracle joins Project Monterey

“Oracle Corp. announced Friday it will join the Project Monterey
effort spearheaded by IBM.”

“Monterey is a 64-bit Unix designed to run on Intel Corp.’s
upcoming 64-bit Itanium processor platform. Intel and the Santa
Cruz Operation are also spearheading the Monterey effort, which
many observers believe will in some part “reunify” Unix on 64-bit

Oracle announced it will treat Monterey as a “tier one”
platform, meaning it will port all of its software to Monterey,
leading off with the Oracle Internet Directory.
