	Hi All,
	I've used Dataflex 2.3b and 3.01 with Xenix 386. Now I
want to move to Linux, and I would like to know if Linux is binary
compatible with Xenix 386, or in other words, I'd like to know
if dataflex will run under linux, and this way I would not loose
my applications.

Well, I put a loader for Xenix 386 binaries into the iBCS emulator a while 
back and it runs a simple hello world program ok. However for real work it 
*will* need more hacking before it works. I haven't got anything more
complex than a hello world Xenix program though :-(.

		       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.
