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.

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 :-(.
