It's been a long time since I had to touch SCO, but I remember it being 
full of really weird stuff.  For example, the root filesystem wasn't the 
real root filesystem.... everything in /bin, /usr/bin, etc was symlinked 
to bizarro SCO-specific paths in /opt/k/sco/something.

Also, a really weird boot process -- the kernel sat on some SCO 
proprietary filesystem, then used that to load drivers to load the UFS root.

Maybe it was "pure" from a "lack of useful BSD extensions" standpoint, 
but it sure didn't resemble AT&T UNIX.
