True... and a lot of what is in BSD and Linux is there for pragmatic
reasons, and much of it was driven by what was found in SunOS and
Solaris.  In fact, some of the most incompatible things in them
originally came out of Sun and ancient UNIX and was done to support
software written for Sun and ancient UNIX.

How the world goes round...
