Computer Giants Join Forces: Computer vendors Digital Equipment Corp. and Tandy Corp. joined software suppliers Santa Cruz Operation Inc., Relational Technology Inc. and Locus Computing Corp. to promote a standard set of software guidelines for the popular Unix computer operating system. The computer operating environment, Open Desktop, includes a set of guidelines and tools for developing Unix software programs.
