Microsoft's secret weapon in its fight against Unix and Linux will feature P-thread, enhanced clustering support and more.
If Microsoft can't beat outright Unix and Linux, it can at least improve its interoperability with these operating systems. And from Redmond's standpoint, one of the best ways to do so is via its Services for Unix (SFU) technology.
Microsoft is set to take the wraps off the newest version of its SFU 3.5 technology this week, a week in advance of the LinuxWorld Expo show.
SFU is a collection of more than 300 Unix utilities, tools and cross-platform services. Microsoft began beta testing its most recent version of the product, release 3.5, in July 2003.
