Anyone know if the UnixWare or SYSVr4 versions of Wordperfect 6.0 would be better
then the SCO versions??  Anyone try either version?

I have a follow-up question:
Would it perhaps be possible to run the dynamically
linked UnixWare version of WP 6.0 with Linux ELF
libraries? I don't know much about ELF but I suspect
it might be possible?

	It is possible to run SVr4 binaries, but the linux ELF
libraries are not compatible with the SVr4 libraries.  There is a set
of shared libraries that can be found in the same location as the
iBCS2 stuff which can be used to run SBr4 binaries under linux.

I have found that not all programs will run with these shared libraries.

Just for a laugh(!) I attempted to install Svr4 Informix-SE on Linux. It works
fine but only if you use the shared libraries that are shipped with UnixWare
-- not entirely legal I suspect!
