   A few days ago there was a question to rename the com-ports. Some said, that
   they would prefer /dev/com1 or /dev/ttycom1. I think, that we should use
   the standard-UNIX-Nmaes /dev/tty01, because we are using unix and NOT DOS.
   perhaps a link to /dev/com1 could be made.

The problem is that /dev/tty01 conflicts with the names used by the
virtual consoles.  That's why I suggested /dev/ttys1, which is used in
at least some BSD systems.

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State 
Court of Utah for trade secrets misappropriation, tortious interference, 
unfair competition and breach of contract. The complaint alleges that IBM 
made concentrated efforts to improperly destroy the economic value of 
UNIX, particularly UNIX on Intel, to benefit IBM's Linux services 
business. See SCO v IBM.
