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.
