"At the high end, Compaq will have Alpha-based servers running
Tandem's NonStop Kernel operating system, Tru64 Unix and OpenVMS,
with Linux-based servers filling out the low end. On the Intel
side, Compaq will offer Windows NT, NetWare, Linux and SCO Inc.'s
upcoming Monterey Unix -- a merged Unix effort involving IBM,
Sequent Computer Systems Inc. and SCO."
"At a strategic level this does not change our focus at all ...
we remain totally committed to Unix and Alpha,'' Yeaton said."
"It makes sense from my perspective as a Tru64 Unix user on
Alpha,'' said Joseph Pollizzi, deputy head of the science and
engineering systems division at the Space Telescope Science
Institute in Baltimore. With SCO already holding a dominant
position in the 32-bit Unix-on-Intel market, it's logical for
Compaq to also offer SCO Unix as the 64-bit Unix of choice on its
Intel servers, Pollizzi said. "Compaq has made its choice. That
makes it easier for me to understand'' its Unix enterprise
strategy, Pollizzi said."
