The Open Software Foundation presents 1990 Technical Seminar Series

The Open Software Foundation invites you to participate
in our 1990 Technical Seminar Series, in-depth seminars on the
OSF/1 operating system and the OSF/Motif graphical user
interface.  By taking advantage of these seminars, you
can stay abreast of new and emerging technology being developed by

Whether you are a programmer, an independent software
vendor, or a strategic planner, these seminars
will help you increase your knowledge of the
open computing environment of the future.

The Open Software Foundation has made a major impact
on the open computing market since it was founded by eight major
computer vendors in May 1988.  First with
the introduction of the award-winning OSF/Motif graphical user
interface, and now with the availability of snapshots--source
code and documentation for the OSF/1 operating system--
OSF helped shape the open systems environment for the 1990's.

OSF's 1990 Technical Seminar Series is devided into two tracks.
Track one provides a close look at the components of the
OSF/1 operating system.  Integrating several advanced operating 
system technologies, the OSF/1 offering is based on
the Mach kernel from Carnegie Mellon University.  It provides
capability for symmetric multiprocessing and
for achieving a B1 level of security.  The Track One
program provides an overview of the architecture and
features of the OSF/1 operating system, including its
compatibility with other UNIX-based systems as
well as special functions and benefits provided by
new technology.

Track Two covers the components of the OSF/Motif graphical user
interface and their behavior, and describes how to program OSF/Motif
applications using the OSF/Motif Toolkit and
User Interface Language.  Instructors will
cover individual components of the OSF/Motif
graphical user interface in detail.

At the site of each seminar, OSF will also set up a demonstration area
where you can see OSF/1 and OSF/Motif implementatioans
running on various hardware platforms.

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State 
Court of Utah for trade secrets misappropriation, tortious interference, 
unfair competition and breach of contract. The complaint alleges that IBM 
made concentrated efforts to improperly destroy the economic value of 
UNIX, particularly UNIX on Intel, to benefit IBM's Linux services 
business. See SCO vs IBM.
