Bill Gates on COM+ and UNIX

{{quote|I think we should say that all of the COM+ interfaces are available on UNIX even though we only provide the COM interfaces.

Do COM transactions work on UNIX? Of course because we have defined these interfaces. We can even have someone like Transarc or one of the old UNIX transaction systems go ahead and implement some of the interfaces. This is great for us. It will never be as cheap or as integrated as it is on the NT platform. We should even encourage them to do this.

So the NEW THING is to say that the interfaces are there on UNIX and we are pleased with that.|Bill Gates}}
