comp.unix.sco Meta FAQ
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.

This FAQ generally deals with SCO Unix but not SCO Unixware. It
covers Xenix, SCO Open Desk Top (ODT), Sco 3.2v4.x releases, and
Open Server (OSR5). Of course SOME of this material is applicable
to any Unix or Linux system.
The best way to find something is to use the Search Tools (http://aplawrence.com/search.html)

material NOT in the FAQ, which is yet another reason to use
Of course, 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 [email protected] (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.
