Subject: Re: FOLLOWUP: Re: Platform adopts DRMAA?
I have to confess that I did not get the information
directly form Platform.
I have been looking for the forum post which mentioned
that Platform's NPi is dead, and Platform is joining
DRMAA. I still couldn't find it.
Nevertheless, I just found that Platform is a member
which defines DRMAA:
So that made the original poster on the forum believed
that Platform is joining DRMAA.
Do you know why Platform discarded NPi?
(Looks like another M$ API standard!)
