A quick search on google.com turned up this interesting description of Xenix from www.computerhope.com: «In the late 1970's Microsoft licensed UNIX source code from AT&T which at the time was not licensing the name UNIX. Therefore Microsoft created the name Xenix. Microsoft did not sell Xenix to end-users but instead licensed the software to software OEMs such as Intel, Tandy, Altos and SCO who then provided a finished version of their own Xenix to the end-users or other customers.» Right, so M$ used to sell off unfinished operating systems. Things haven't changed much since then :) -- ____________________________________________ | G.
