In the on-going battle between UNIX and Windows NT, Microsoft offers a new strategy. The company is developing the Microsoft(reg) Windows NT(reg) Services for UNIX Add-On Pack, which, it says, will make it easier for customers to integrate Windows NT Workstation 4.0 and Windows NT Server 4.0 into their existing UNIX environments. Windows NT Services for UNIX combines technologies developed internally, such as Telnet and password synchronization, with technologies licensed from third-party partners, specifically NFS from Intergraph and scripting tools from MKS. Microsoft plans to deliver a beta version of the Windows NT Services for UNIX Add-On Pack this summer for both Intel and Alpha platforms. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
At the Design News webinar on June 27, learn all about aluminum extrusion: designing the right shape so it costs the least, is simplest to manufacture, and best fits the application's structural requirements.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This radio show will show what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
