UnixWare 4.1?

Hi!

Anyone familiar with UnixWare 4.1? Where can I get info on this Unix version and what would be typical hardware used to run this? I'm an AS/400 programmer myself and have been asked to do a small programming job on a UnixWare 4.1 system. What would be the programming language used on a system like this? Thanks!

Why you want to program for UnixWare 4.1? It is very old, the current version of SCO UnixWare is 7.x, any way, the binary run on 4.x is likely can run on 7.x. It is better to do
your programming in the current version of OS.

SCO UnixWare run on Intel-based hardware (normal PCs), typical hardware including
serial terminal, tape drive, printers, multi-IO cards (for terminals).

Please have a look at the following FAQs:

So that UnixWare 4.1 could run on my old Pentium II PC? Is there anywhere I could get a (evaluation) copy of UnixWare 4.1, or would I require a software license, even if it's that old? I'm not planning on running business applications on it, it's purely for self-educational purposes...

SCO is getting out of the market !  I think you can get free copy 7~8 years ago for
(evaluation), not any more.

"self-educational purposes"

why not get a copy of Linux (Free) and install it to your PC:

Or
Get Solsris X 86 (free) from:
       http://wwws.sun.com/software/solaris/binaries/get.html

Good luck!

I think I'll grab that Sun Solaris, so that would basicly be about the same as UnixWare, just newer version?

Thanks for all the links yuzh!

Hi Mind_nl,
   Solaris is not the same as SCO's UnixWare !
   Solaris is a good starting pionts for main stream *nix!

   Good luck!
