Ooooh!  Way cool!  Thought I'd post this here, since discussions on
binary compatibility for Linux and Xenix and ISC have begun in c.o.l.

The current Xenix/SysV.3 binary compatibility that exists in ISC and
SCO products is fairly limited.  It almost always falls down when
networking is involved or VGA hardware access is attempted.  I have
seen a Xenix UNIFY DBMS installed installed and run fine under SCO
UNIX, though, so I know the binary compatibility is valuable.
