Mobile application security vulnerability report

Compaq has said that Digital Unix will become the industry standard Unix over the next few years. At a press briefing held at Digital’s former offices in central London, Compaq said that Sequent and Tandem will take Digital Unix (D/UX) and persuade other vendors to adopt it too. Richard George, in charge of Compaq’s Alpha processor in the UK, said: "We’ll achieve 22 per cent of the Unix market share by the year 2002." Hugh Jenkins, enterprise director at Compaq UK, who is masterminding the integration of Compaq, Digital and Tandem at the enterprise level, said: "SCO are not in the business of providing a volume dynamic in the business critical market." George said that Compaq is integrating D/UX with Windows NT. Because they were both "little endian" systems, interoperability was not a problem. Systems like Solaris and HP/UX were Big Endian systems and so could not achieve the same level of interoperability, said George. Jenkins said that "no-one" was buying the Solaris operating system for Intel platforms.
