		Microsystems has announced a new technology designed to
integrate their Solaris servers into Windows NT networks.
		The new technology - code named "Project Cascade" - allows
Solaris servers, of either the Intel or SPARC platforms, to provide native
Windows NT network services such as naming, authentication, file, and print
sharing.  Note that the servers are still running Solaris, the Sun variety
of UNIX, and are running Windows NT services on top of it, through the
facility of the new software.  According to Sun, no special Client software
is needed, as clients can access the server as they would a regular Windows
NT server, and it is transparent to users.
		The Project Cascade software, which is compatible with the
network features in Windows NT 4.0 Service Pack 3, includes the Windows NT
Directory Service, security and authentication, and the Windows NT File
System (NTFS).  
		Pricing and availability for this software will be announced
in the first quarter of 1999.
