We've got good support inside SCO to make the licenses happen, but other sections inside SCO are dragging their heels on the idea. However, I still think we will see cheap personal source licenses for PDP-11 UNIX. Check out the PUPS web page at http://minnie.cs.adfa.oz.au/PUPS/ for more details. Please sign the license petition if you haven't already done so!! Thanks, Warren P.S Remove an `n' in my email address to reply.
