TOPIC:  4.4BSD - Progress Since Reno

      This talk will provide a brief overview of work in progress at
      Berkeley since the release of 4.3BSD-Reno in April, 1990, and
      NET/2 in June of 1991, with an emphasis on features that are
      available in 4.4BSD.  Among these changes are a log-structured
      file system, 64-bit files, new interfaces for getting and setting
      kernel information, and the addition of database access methods.
      Also, a survey of the extensive changes in the applications layer
      will be presented, including the addition of more freely
      redistributable software.

		       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.
