Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers


"Metro Link Inc. (http://www.metrolink.com/index.html), leading provider of Motif GUI software, has released Open Motif with Metro Link's enhancements and bug fixes, available for free FTP download."

"In May 2000, The Open Group, owners of the Motif user interface toolkit technology, released the Motif source code for royalty-free use, reproduction, and distribution on Open Source operating systems such as Linux and FreeBSD. As an official supporter of the Open Motif initiative, Metro Link is now providing freely downloadable Motif binary packages based on this source code."

"Metro Link's package is an enhanced version of Open Motif, which includes approximately 30 significant bug fixes and enhancements to the Motif libraries and window manager, plus many minor source changes and over 100 fixes to the Motif demo source code. These changes were developed for Metro Link's commercial Motif products, and are now being contributed back to Open Motif."
