This article is from a FAQ concerning SCO operating systems. While some of the information may be applicable to any OS, or any Unix or Linux OS, it may be specific to SCO Xenix, Open There is lots of Linux, Mac OS X and general Unix info elsewhere on this site: Search this site is the best way to find anything.

What's this free copy of SCO Unix I keep hearing about?


(And why would you want it anyway?)

On 19 August 1996, SCO announced that the single-user (desktop) configuration of OpenServer Release 5 would be available free of charge for noncommercial use. The package includes OSR5 Desktop, the development system (C/C++ compilers), SCO Doctor Lite, and SCO ARCserve/Open Lite.

Since then, SCO has also released a free version of SCO UnixWare.

For full details, including the license terms and on-line ordering information, see http://shop.sco.com/offers/.
