Yes, my UUCP implementation (which includes mail and netnews
generation and handling) will be available for the IBM-PC, both
for MSDOS and Coherent.  The MSDOS version will hopefully appear
very early in '84.  The implementation allows the user to become
a Usenet site and of course to forward mail to other sites (i.e.
you do not have to act only as a "terminal" mail node.)

Another version of my code for native VMS is also under development;
it has the same mail/netnews features and (being written from
scratch) will *NOT* require paying for a Unix binary license.
I might also add that it doesn't have any of the Unix UUCP bugs, either!
Full mail interfacing into VMS is being supported.

		       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.
