I have tried some fairly troublesome binaries and haven't seen any problems
Running EMACS and RCS off of the SkunkWare distribution is giving me a problem
when I check in or out a file on an NFS filesystem on a ODT 3.0 fileserver.
But I'll get to that in a different post.

Currently SCO is running a promotion for personal development systems through
their integrators. I just purchased an OpenServer Enterprise System, with a 5
user license, SCO Virtual Disk Manager, SCO Merge Server System License, SCO
Wabi Server System License, SCO OpenServer Development System, and SCO SMP
License for 1 add'l CPU for $345.00.
This included full TCP/IP, NFS, NIS, Lan Manager, IPX/SPX, Netware Server
Integration, X-Windows and Motif.
Plus, lots of other cool stuff. The integrator I got it from will throw the
promo copy in free with the purchase of a server.
The caveat is one copy per entity, no support, no manuals (except for full
HTML Manuals and documentation set online)
