Microsoft will launch the formal beta version of its Hydra terminal emulation software for Windows NT early next month.
The product was scheduled to be announced at Comdex Fall in Las Vegas in mid-November, but the Microsoft marketing machine feared it would get lost among the numerous other product announcements. Some suppliers that are in the process of developing Hydra-compliant Windows terminals have complained they are still waiting for the software giant to deliver specifications for its communications protocol, T-Share, but others such as Network Computing Devices and Wyse Technologies are expected to display their wares at the Microsoft booth at Comdex.
Hydra is scheduled to ship next year as an add-on to version 4.0 of Windows NT.
