    When SCO was cool

    A lot of people talk about (and hate!) SCO now, but they used to be a cool company. They had a little office in Santa Cruz, California, complete with a redwood hottub. It wasn't unsual to see SCO engineers walking around with nothing on, going to and from the hottub!

    I learned Unix one day on a whim. I was doing software developement for military contractors (around 1989), and wanted to move to the commercial sector. Unix was "hot" and I wanted to become familiar with it. So I paid about $1200 for a copy of SCO Xenix, which came in two boxes like this:

    How could they turn out to be the crapola company they've become?

    Funny, you brought this up. I was looking through my store room today, and found my copy of SCO UNIX System 5. I remember how much I did like it. Just for fun, this weekend, I think I will try and get it up and running again.
