UNIX INTERNATIONAL ANNOUNCES EARLY ACCESS FOR UNIX SVR4 FOR LOW-END AND DESKTOP SYSTEMS

 UNIX INTERNATIONAL ANNOUNCES EARLY ACCESS
 FOR UNIX SVR4 FOR LOW-END AND DESKTOP SYSTEMS
 PARSIPPANY, N.J., Jan. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Through its Early Access program, UNIX International (UI) today provided its membership with access to pre-release source code for the low-end/desktop SVR4.1 program currently under development by UNIX System Laboratories, Inc. (USL).
 This pre-release source code will allow members to start development work immediately on low-end and desktop SVR4.1 projects, and reduce the time-to-market for their binary products when the low-end desktop SVR4.1 source code is generally available from USL.
 The UI Early Access program disseminates pre-release USL reference technologies to the membership as early as possible in the development cycle to ensure that all UI members have fair and equal access to open systems technologies.
 In 1991, the UI Desktop Requirements Workgroup specified a set of features required for the UNIX(R) System on low-end servers and desktop systems. The UI Desktop Workgroup requirements are consistent with the System V Roadmap and UI-ATLAS(tm), and are designed to allow users to exploit the power of the UNIX System on the desktop as an integral part of the total enterprise network. USL has committed to support the requirements of the UI Desktop Requirements Workgroup and provide ATLAS-compliant reference technologies.
 Peter Cunningham, president and CEO of UNIX International, said, "1992 is the 'Year of the Desktop.' The UI Desktop Workgroup has described how SVR4 can provide power and productivity beyond existing desktop technologies. This early access release to our members allows them to begin work on the products that will change the face of the industry in 1992."
 Roel Pieper, president and CEO of UNIX System Laboratories (USL), said, "USL is pleased to work with UNIX International to make the Early Access program as effective as possible in accelerating the availability of products based on this new operating system in 1992."
 UNIX International is the not-for-profit international consortium of more than 260 members which include end users, developers, vendors and systems manufacturers. This broad based membership helps define the future of open systems based on the UNIX System V Release 4 family of operating systems and UI-ATLAS, an open system framework providing the environment and services for distributed, desktop and corporate hub computing.
