The June issue of BYTE magazine has a fairly long article on XENIX by
Microsoft's XENIX product manager.  Mostly, it's a standard "What's a
UNIX" paper, but it also describes some of the enhancements they are
adding to V7.  The most important is support; additionally, they are
going to add a fair amount of hardware error recovery (bad block
handling, parity and power fail interrupts, etc.), as well as record
handling, shared data segments, synchronous writing, improved
interprocess communications, networking, and languages:  Pascal, BASIC,
FORTRAN, and COBOL.

		       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,
