I am also interested in knowing what Linux will and won't run.
Thanks!

Well, that's the version I used in developing the iBCS emulator. It's a long 
time since it managed to give me a surprise in either text or X mode.

  You need to look on tsx-11.mit.edu under pub/linux/ALPHA/ibcs2 and perhaps 
join the IBCS2 mailing list on linux-activi...@niksula.hut.fi.

So get the latest version of the iBCS emulator from tsx-11, read the COMPAT 
file, the README file, the HINTS file, anything else readable and *try* 
things. Only by conquering your own apathy will you progress from here...

Sorry, not yet. I've tested some programs and none of them were running  
:-(( , except of scripts :-)

You need the iBCS2 patches to run IBCS (ie SCO /ISC etc code). With these
I found 95% of things went fine and 5% went splot - but that was a while ago.

		       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 vs IBM.
