SCO, Caldera, Unixware "Since they cannot show infringement of SCO Unix code, SCO now plans to challenge the 9-year-old settlement between AT&T and BSD. If it can successfully do that, then its claims that Linux contains tainted code can be substantiated. If it can't, SCO is dead meat." Says NewsForge. *Updated*

I found this about the early Apple Lisa -- 1983. I think this is what the guy was referring to when he told me the early Apple OS was based on UNIX. His statment wasn't entirely true.

"Re-writing UNIX to conform to the Lisa's requirements would have been very costly and more time consuming than was practical, so Apple wrote an OS for the Lisa from the ground up."

"The Apple Lisa supports several operating systems in addition to the Lisa OS including Unix, CP/M, XENIX, and the Mac OS (with the MacWorks emulator)"

I got the info from here:
