UWS indicates a distribution that includes the Ultrix OS and the X 
Window System; there were also Ultrix-only distributions. UWS 1 included 
Ultrix 2, and UWS 2 included Ultrix 3. I believe they then sync'd the 
numbers with Ultrix 4.

When these products were distributed on TK50 cartridges there would 
typically be one tape marked SUPPorted and one tape marked UNSUPported. 
So I believe you have two complete distributions for each architecture, 
and the docs for 4.2.

Hope that helps,
