" From: Andrew Jones <ascii.letter at gmail.com>
" XENIX was a Microsoft port of SysV to early PCs. At some point in the 
" 80s, it was transferred to SCO. I don't know what SCO's business was 
" before XENIX, because XENIX (AKA SCO UNIX, AKA OpenServer) became their 
" most important product. XENIX is notable in my mind for being one of the 
" few operating systems to support 286 protected mode.

i've always thought that sco -was- the ms xenix group, spun off.
makes it all the odder they now own att unix.  talk about the tail
wagging the dog...
