Most UNIX vendors have developer programs that allow access to low cost development hardware and software. In some cases porting and development system support is included. Since MS-Windows developers might not be familiar with these programs we have included here contact information of the reseller programs for the leading UNIX vendors. This information is provided for your convenience. Software UNO does not endorse any of these programs and the information is subject to change. Please check with the vendors for any updated information.
