Copland in 1997?

Send Article to a Friend

Copland in 1997? In an interview in the 16-Oct-95 issue of MacWEEK, Vito Salvaggio, the product manager for Copland, indicated Apple can no longer commit to a 1996 release for the next major version of the Mac OS. Despite public statements from Apple officials that Copland was as little as two days behind schedule, rumors of schedule problems have circulated for the last few months and many saw Apple's move to port System 7.5 to the Common Hardware Reference Platform (CHRP) by mid-1996 as a sign that Copland may not be ready on time. (The CHRP standard, developed jointly with IBM, should allow machines to run the Mac OS, OS/2, AIX, or Windows NT; the first systems should be available from other vendors by mid-1996.) If you're upset, remember Apple originally claimed it was absolutely committed to shipping Copland in 1995. [GD]
