Although Ellen Hancock, Apple?s chief technology officer, categorically said two weeks ago that the company would not buy developer Be, that situation may change next week.
According to US reports, at a board meeting held next week senior executives will make a final decision about the direction the Apple operating system will take. Hancock had not made a final decision two weeks ago but was nervous about adopting an in-house microkernel. (At IBM she was responsible for developing an abortive microkernel for OS/2.)
Thedecision is urgent because Mac developers want to know what direction they should take with their own offerings in 1997. Apple also wants to make a clear statement about its future intentions at Macworld, held in January in San Francisco.
