With the proper drivers install into the kernel, does most of SCO's
software run on a Linux box.  I hear all the time of Wordperfect
running what about other software for SCO.

Truely *NOT* all (see the iBCS2 documentation).
WP works, and also xess3 (a SCO spreadsheet prog -> amazing fast!
get the demo from ftp.uu.net /vendors/auis...); stupid, but

There are many, many others..... add Island Write/Draw/Paint, SCO
Professional, Lotus 123.

These should also work, but I haven't tested them yet-

ClockWise, Foxbase+, FoxPro, Dbase, Applixware,  Grammatik

I have heard of yet many others which have worked.

The fact that many, *many* people seem to be using iBCS but hardly anyone 
talks to me <sniff> would appear to suggest there are few applications that 
have significant problems. I might be reduced to adding 286 Xenix support 
soon :-(.

		       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.
