Locus announces availability of Merge 3.2 for SCO OpenServer Release 5.
Merge 3.2 provides support for DOS and Windows ``shrinkwrap'' applications running unchanged on SCO's OpenServer platform.
``Merge 3.2 provides increased application support and improved performance,'' said Bob Peterson, director, Merge Technology Group, at Locus. ``This technology provides users with the ability to run thousands of off-the-shelf DOS and Windows applications in the SCO OpenServer environment.''
``Via SCO Merge, users will have the ability to run DOS and Windows applications in desktop and server configurations, further supporting SCO's commitment to Windows integration,'' said Jerry Morgan, director, product management, at the Santa Cruz Operation.
Merge is a software technology that allows DOS or Windows applications to execute on an Intel 386, 486 or Pentium-based UNIX System. It allows UNIX users to concurrently access multiple UNIX, DOS and Windows processes on a single system.
Merge combines the multiuser, multitasking power of the UNIX operating system with the versatility and personal productivity of thousands of off-the-shelf DOS and Windows applications.
