two hp reps brought one of these machines to my office.  five of us hobbled
over to a larger room.  it's an impressive machine for it's size and what it
does.  i want to emphasize the above points: the version we had some 20
commands from what most users would call /bin or /usr/bin [ and /usr/ucb
if you are running bsd].

after a few minutes you get tired of hearing the floppy turn [they
also said there is a fan in the thing: it was pretty quiet].  you
really have to have the 55 MB disk to appreciate it.  the Development
environment has pwb, wwb, as well as 'the rest.' [ this includes uucp.  just
think you can have a portable roving uucp node!]  this means no languages
on the bare machine except hp-basic.  speed and screen resolution are ok.
the printer goes for 500 pages before a new head assembly is needed
[really small thing, inexpensive, a smoother than plain paper is needed].
the hp-ib appears to be a nice thing to have.  the process limit
is fixed around 10, i think, + or - a few: we had the window manager
and two shells running as well.  the mouse has different semantics.
you have to test drive this machine.  i'll wait for the lap-sized
version of this machine in the future {must have more storage}, it
weighs [they said] 25 lbs.  i think our model was 30 [i carry a 20 lbs
mac to and from work, when well].

			        About USENET

USENET (Users’ Network) was a bulletin board shared among many computer
systems around the world. USENET was a logical network, sitting on top
of several physical networks, among them UUCP, BLICN, BERKNET, X.25, and
the ARPANET. Sites on USENET included many universities, private companies
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 vs IBM.
