     We have the opporunity to obtain  a large number of 80186 based UNIX
System V systems from a very large US electronics manufacturer at a very
competitive price. This is a very solid entry level or development system
but with all the hype about 80386 I am looking at the viability before we
proceed.  These are current models and are still being sold to OEM's. The
basic configuration consists of an 8 Mhz 80186 with 1 Mbte memory, a 43 mbyte
disk drive (with room and power for a second drive),a single 360 K floppy
capable of reading and writing DOS diskettes,  8 serial ports and 1 parallel
port.  The version of UNIX V is IN/IX and is from INTERACTIVE System of
Santa Monica, CA.  This is a pedestal mount box with a full Unix development
system including "C", development utilities, communications(uucp, a 'cu'
equivalent, umodem), text formatting programs such as [nt]roff and several
editors such as vi, ed, and INed.  This also includes Berkeley enhancements
including csh. It supports 4 to 6 users with good response. This entire
package could be availible for $4000 plus shipping and tax.  Dealer discounts
would be possible.

       Optional Software packages already ported and availible from various
sources are:
	   LEX word processor
	   Informix - data base
	   Unify - data base
	   Ultracalc - spread sheet
	   Real World - accounting software
	   Business Accounting Control Systems - American Business Systems
	   Newport Technology's CONCEPT manufacturing package
	   FISCAL - retail package that supports scanners and includes basi
	   Garment industries package
	   Easy Link - a telex package
	   LOCUS - PC Interface for MS-DOS and unix integration
	   RM Cobol
	   FORTRAN 77
	   BASIC - Microsoft compatible
	   All of INTERACTIVE IN/ix products (mail, word processing,
	   networking, programmer's tool kit, etc.)

   Hardware options include
	 Larger disk drives (86 mbyte)
	 Up to 2 disk drives
	 Tape backup

If you are interested, please give me some idea of how serious you are.

		       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.
