Re: TSG is not SCO

Novell didn't just buy SysV UNIX from USL; they bought all of USL. Then Attachmate Group bought Novell, and now we've merged with Attachmate. That means Micro Focus now contains, in addition to the original Micro Focus (one of the oldest PC software firms), in no particular order:

Borland, Novell, SUSE, USL, WordPerfect, Digital Research (of CP-M fame), NetManage, Rumba, parts of Compuware, and most of the (non-mainframe) COBOL and CORBA products

Among other things.

No doubt I'm biased, but I think it's kind of cool. There's a fascinating (and nostalgic) history of PC software there.
