Question OEM - what does this abbreviation stand for?

Just saw this OEM abbreviation during installation of Solaris 8.

I'm curious to know what the letters stand for and what OEM actually is.

or Original Equipment Manufacturer. A company that manufactures a product and sells it to a reseller.

It means the company that manufactured this Equipment/Machine.

The company that manufacture's Equipments/Machines/Softwares will have to follow certain standards in the product before they reach the Public. There might be lots of laws/reasons why this should be followed. But how ever to be more simpler., it should compley with Industry Standards & should be safe enough.

Every company will have its own Rules, Regulations, Standards & Licencing Implications on the product that they manufacture & sell to the Public.

So, probably while installing new systems u will come accross this OEM being mentioned on Manuals & Installation Software., which says that u are installing a Genuine Product duly Authorized & Licenced from the Original Equipment Manufacturer.
