               COLLOQUIUM ACTIVITIES

               COMPUTER SCIENCE COLLOQUIUM - Wednesday, June 16, 1982.

               Dr. Rob Pike of Bell Laboratories, Murray Hill,  will
               speak  on  "The  Blit:  Merging  Bitmap  Graphics and
               Unix".

               TIME:  3:30 PM

               ROOM:  M&C 5158

               ABSTRACT

               The Blit terminal developed at Bell Labs by Bart  Lo-
               canthi and Rob Pike aims at the middle ground between
               time-sharing and personal  computing,  providing  the
               advantages of high-speed interactive graphics against
               the familiar backdrop of the Unix  time-sharing  sys-
               tem.   The  terminal  has  very inexpensive hardware,
               cheap and simple enough to take  home,  but  designed
               with  software  in  mind by the people who planned to
               write the software and use the terminal.  The  result
               is  a  working environment which augments Unix rather
               than compete with it.  Two general  improvements  in-
               troduced to Unix by the Blit world are:

                  + interactive graphics for (potentially) any user
                  + a multiprogramming terminal to assist  the  mul-
                  tiprogramming operating systems.

               This talk will focus on  issues  of  software  design
               (particularly  the division of labor between hardware
               and software, terminal and operating system) and user
               interface,  and  will  be  peppered  with examples of
               Blits in action.

               Coffee and refreshments will be served at 3:00 PM.

and research organizations. See USENET Archives.

		       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 v IBM.
