AN EVENT AT COMPUTER LITERACY BOOKSHOPS
-----------------------------------------

----------------------------------------------------------------------
A BRIEF HISTORY, CURRENT STATUS AND FUTURE OF BSD
----------------------------------------------------------------------

A free presentation by MARSHALL KIRK MCKUSICK Ph.D.

Dr. McKusick will give a brief history on the development of BSD at 
U.C. Berkeley.  He will describe the events leading up to the release
of the freely redistributable version of BSD and the ensuing fight to 
keep it free.  He will also outline the state of the current 4.4BSD-Lite
Release 2 software distribution and prognosticate on the future
direction of the BSD software.

Marshall Kirk McKusick Ph.D. writes books and articles, consults and
teaches classes on UNIX- and BSD-related subjects.  While at U.C.
Berkeley, he implemented the 4.2BSD fast file system, and was the
Research Computer Scientist at the Berkeley Computer Systems Research
Group (CSRG) overseeing the development and release of 4.3BSD and 
4.4BSD.  His particular areas of interest are the virtual-memory
system and the file system.  One day, he hopes to see them merged
seamlessly.  Dr. McKusick was President of the USENIX Association and
is a member of ACM and IEEE.  He is the coauthor of "The Design
and Implementation of the 4.4BSD Operating System".

		       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.
