IMHO, SCO has never done anything positive for the Unix/Linux
communities. Xenix (which was originally Microsoft) was horrible. Their
System V was somewhat non-standard. We ran Xenix for a short time at the
old BCS until we found a much more stable listserv for MS-DOS. I had the
occasion to install SCO System V on my PC also.
