Unix company SCO is developing a 64-bit version of Unix with other midrange vendors, in a last minute bid to stem the rise and rise of Windows NT.
Sources close to SCO said it has signed deals with major Unix vendors including Hewlett-Packard, Data General, Digital and Siemens to produce a flavour of the operating system, which crosses all platforms.
"You have all these flavours in Unix but the 64-bit Unix operating system will embrace them all," he said. "The vendors are working together to produce one version of Unix which works on PCs and midrange machines."
