Top of the list - The ISODE Consortium who brought you things like X500, SMTP, SNMP, MIME and other little things like that which make th eInternet such a cool place. Next would be The X Consortium who brought us X-Windows, which is simply too cool to be believed... unless of course you use it all of the time and then there's no way you'd ever use anything else. Don't forget that you can get started on the world's fastest-growing operating-system, Linux, right here at this Slackware96 Archive. Remember, it's absolutely free.

Objective Systems Integrators (OSI).
Operations Support Systems and Network Integration. Makers of NetExpert. " OSI's products defy classification because they are used to create management systems that are applied in more diverse communications markets than can be matched by any competitor. NetExpert software systems support the operations of telecommunications and computer networks and systems throughout the world. Virtually any communications system containing elements that are capable of reporting status can be managed using NetExpert.... NetExpert accomplishes this with intelligence that perceives the managed environment similarly to the way humans do: as a series of objects. In the world, objects, such as people, furniture, or plants, can be grouped by class based on "instances," such as male people, glass tables, and flowering plants; the groups can be divided into subclasses down to the individual male, table, or plant; and objects, instances, classes, and subclasses can exist in relation to one another, such as a male sitting at a table that holds a flowering plant.
