I've gotten interested enough in the history of Unix at U of T to
attempt a compilation of early events.  It helps that I was around
for much of it, although annoyingly I don't remember the dates all
that well.  In case people either are interested or can contribute
some useful information, here's a rough start:

late 1974	CSRG 11/45 running V5 (anyone know the exact dates?)
early 1975?	45 upgrades to V6
Jan 1977	45 survives (running throughout!) Sandford Fleming fire
summer 1978	Zoology 11/34 running V6 (exact date uncertain)
Sept 1978	UTCS 11/70 running PWB
late 1978	CSRG 11/50 running V6
early 1979	Dentistry 11/60 running V6 (PWB??)
early 1980	CSRG 50 upgrades to V7 (45 still running V6)
spring 1981	Zoology (now a 44) joins Usenet, first U of T site on it
summer 1984	CSRG 11/45 retired, still running V6 (!)

Details, dates, and additions to the chronology are welcome.

		       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.
