SCO has announced emulation software that allows Windows 95 applications to run on top of the company's SCO OpenServer operating system.
SCO Merge 4.0 is the first version of Merge to support 32-bit Windows applications. Earlier versions only ran Dos and Windows 3.x applications, which are still supported in the new release.
With Merge 4.0 running on top of OpenServer on an Intel machine, multiple users can access Windows applications off the same server, using Unix workstations or X-terminals. According to SCO, this allows companies to run their business-critical applications on Unix, while giving users access to Windows productivity software.
SCO licenses the Merge emulation software from Platinum Technology. The software requires SCO OpenServer 5.0.4 or later, running on a 486/25 or better CPU. A Windows 95 installation CD and license is needed. Each Windows 95 session requires 16 MB or RAM.
A desktop version is priced at $415. An unlimited user server version will sell for $1195. Non-commercial use of the software is free.
