No, I don't think so - but they are marketing this thing HEAD ON with
OS/2.  Open desktop runs on TOP of UNIX.  Their Xenix products will still
be supported, but I have a feeling they'd like to phaze them out.  I hear
that SCO NFS will only be released for UNIX and not XENIX.  This is a bit
of a bummer.  Hopefully a third party will close this gap.
