<sigh> Without starting the "Is Linux Unix?" thread all over again, it
is in fact illegal to send him UNIX without a license; by UNIX I mean
SCO, Digital, etc. These products are actually *called* UNIX. Linux is
very similar - although not identical - to these products. Will it fill
the original request? Probably. Is it actually UNIX [the trademarked
product]? No, it is not. (Yes, I'm nitpicking.) The issue here is
purely a semantic one: Linux looks, smells and tastes like UNIX, but is
not called UNIX because UNIX is trademarked. If you ask me for a
Band-Aid(tm) and I hand you a Curad Adhesive Bandage(tm), have I filled
your request? Functionally, yes, since the products are almost
identical - technically, no, since Band-Aid(tm) is a brand name and what
I handed you is not a Band-Aid(tm).
