Softway Systems' Interix middleware has become the first product to achieve official branding from the Open Group.
The product from San Francisco based Softway enables users to run both NT and Unix applications on NT.
Softway submitted Interix 2.2 to the Open Group last year, and it is now certifying the middleware, formerly OpenNT, as Unix 95-compliant with Unix 98 certification planned for the near future. The first systems should ship in early 1999.
Doug Miller, Softway chief executive, said: "Customers need to recapture their significant investment in enterprise software written for Unix. By using Interix to run these applications on Windows NT they will benefit from significant cost of ownership advantages."
Jim Allchin, senior vice president at Microsoft, commented that customers will be able to protect their past investments in Unix applications, "while leveraging Windows NT Workstation and Windows NT Server".
Final certification will be based on the current Interix 2.2 release and existing customers can start rehosting applications immediately.
