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.

1. Anyone used "Dell Dimension XPS T133C" for SCO UNIX 4.2

Hi has anyone any experience of using a "Dell Dimension XPS T133C" to
run SCO UNIX 3.2 4.2.

A customer of ours has one that hangs every now and then. I don't know
the simptoms (I haven't seen the machine YET!), but I was wondering if
anyone else had had problems with this hardware and could give me a
headstart ...
