MS is licensing the code which it once owned. They licensed Unix from
AT&T Bell Labs, then portd it to many platforms and called it Xeinix.
Then the IBM PC came and they sold their Unix business all to a company
called SCO and SCO renamed it to OpenServer or something like that.
Now, they are licensing back their code. And with this they are helping
SCO not go bankrupt, and stand against IBM in the court.
