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!

		       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.
