SCO Registers UNIX(R) Copyrights, Offers UNIX License by ignatius.schwartz-pr.com(Postfix) with ESMTP id 5EF605D87 for <scoannmodxenitec.on.ca>; Mon, 21 - SCO

Some code of Windows is based/taken from the UNIX and LINUX environnement system. (Like some DNS, TCP and Internet Explorer things) Can we use Windows or have we to pay some licencing fee to SCO to be able to use Windows? Best regards, Gabriel...

    Actually much of the TCP came from BSD and a strings on many of the
    net utilities in the past would reveal the Regents strings.
    That has gone from almost all of those programs now as the word
    spread.

    Much of the TCP/IP came from Berkeley and USRG in the early '80s
    and ISTR that is was either BBN or Lachman who did much of that
    work. {I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong} All that
    code is wide open and not covered by anything more than the Regents
    copyrights.

    At one of the Usenix conferences I was at in either '86 or '91
    they had a map of the UCB campus network with over 8000 machines.
    That really showed how well a heterogenous network could operate.
    My view is that MS and Novell were about the last to embrace those
    concepts and much of the early networking was homogenous.
