Summary
  • Why has IBM agreed to make its mainframe operating system available to Fujitsu Ltd and Hitachi Ltd, thus giving IBM's plug-compatible rivals the benefits of IBM's work and user base? The history of operating systems as the primary source of mainframe, minicomputer, and microcomputer market strength is reviewed. Users buy on the basis of their operating system; a supplier, like DEC, with its own operating system can build a customer base and not be forced to share it. IBM's move appears to be a colossal mistake. But the cash reward is not the likely motive, nor is the legal aspect, as DEC has been able to legally protect VMS. Perhaps IBM expects its hardware improvements to come so fast that the Japanese will not be able to keep up. IBM's strategy would be to let the IBM-compatible market be built and then take it over with license fees and product improvements. Indeed, this would be a brilliant competitive maneuver.
