comp.unix.sco Meta FAQ

© May 2020 Anthony Lawrence

This used to be a SCO Unix faq. I've updated a lot of it to include Linux and other info, but some of it may be strictly of interest to SCO users (or those migrating from it).

Personally, I don't see SCO surviving much longer - aside from the extreme hatred from some open source folk, it's obvious to most of us that Linux is simply a better choice today. That said, some folks are unfortunately stuck with applications that cann ot be ported to Linux.. so I keep this stuff here for them.

If you just want to learn everything you possibly can, reading the whole thing is a beginning.

There are two major divisions:

These FAQS were developed and maintained for years by steved@ussinc.com (Stephen M. Dunn). Steve no longer has the time to maintain them, and has asked me to take them over. Please remember the debt all of us owe to Steve for his efforts- I myself spent many hours learning from these very documents, and I'm sure many of us can say similar things.
