Open Software Foundation (OSF)

The Open Software Foundation (OSF) was a pioneer industry-sponsored organization whose purpose was to foster, identify, and, in some cases, develop software technologies that could serve as industry and perhaps eventually national and international standards. OSF developed a widely-implemented cross-platform industry-standard for distributed computing, the Distributed Computing Environment (DCE). OSF has been incorporated into The Open Group.
