The 88open Consortium
was an industry standards group set up by Motorola
in 1988 to standardize Unix systems on their Motorola 88000 RISC processor
systems. The effort was largely a failure, at least in terms of attracting attention to the 88000 platform, and the group folded as soon as Motorola turned their attention to the PowerPC
- Object Compatibility Standard (OCS): An 88open standard for compilers and linkers.
