APPLE ANNOUNCES A/UX 3.0 UPDATE PROGRAM

 APPLE ANNOUNCES A/UX 3.0 UPDATE PROGRAM
 SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 22 /PRNewswire/ --


Product Description:
 A/UX, Apple's version of the industry-standard UNIX operating system for the Macintosh personal computer, gives users access to the intuitive Macintosh desktop within the UNIX environment. With A/UX, users can simultaneously run multiple Macintosh productivity applications, UNIX applications, X Window System applications and MS- DOS applications (using SoftPC from Insignia Solutions, Inc.) on one desktop.
 A/UX 3.0, Apple's latest version of UNIX, offers customers new features:
 -- It further integrates Macintosh power and ease-of-use features ranging from full System 7 functionality to support for the high-performance Macintosh Quadra computers, with industry-standard UNIX.
 -- It will be the first version of system software from Apple that integrates QuickTime, the revolutionary extension to Macintosh and A/UX system software products that provides exciting new multimedia capabilities such as sound, video and animation.
 -- It is the stepping stone for a smooth migration path to the PowerOpen environment--a new, open-systems environment created by Apple and IBM's recent alliance, that will offer customers and developers an easy-to-use, standards-based, high-performance system. Significance:
 Through Apple's A/UX 3.0 Update Program, U.S. customers who purchase A/UX 2.0.1 on a CD-ROM, floppy disks or pre-installed on an A/UX-capable computer
after October 30, 1991 can receive A/UX 3.0 at no extra cost. Programs outside the U.S. may vary.
