HP Opens Up the HP-UX Roadmap

If Hewlett-Packard has been a little skittish about talking about its roadmap for its HP-UX Unix variant in recent years, that has had nothing to do with its commitment to the platform. HP's shyness over the years, however, has had everything to do with the difficulties that HP had coping with two distinct RISC/Unix platforms in the wake of the Compaq merger five years ago. That's water under the bridge now, and with rival Sun Microsystems hogging all the Unix press with its Solaris 10 product and OpenSolaris project, HP is ready to talk about its plans for HP-UX.

HP is willing to talk some, not a lot. So don't get that excited.
