SCO announces a Unix-based NC/OS

SCO has announced that its Network Client Operating System (NC/OS) is available immediately to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) who are interested in making Internet appliances.

SCO (Santa Cruz Operation) has announced that its Network Client Operating System (NC/OS) is available immediately to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) who are interested in making Internet appliances. The Unix-based operating system occupies 1.5Mb of memory, includes Netscape Navigator browser software and Java object-oriented software and will operate with any Intel chip.

A handful of OEMs is evaluating the operating system and systems could reach market by late September, a SCO spokesman says. The operating system is targeted more for use in corporate intranets than households, he says, adding that US$750 is a conceivable price for the end products.

SCO will preview its NC/OS at its SCO Forum next week.
