What I wonder is: Are they that different that software must be
separately compiled for SCO, ISC, AT&T, ESIX...?
I run both SCO Xenix and ISC Unix on my box (can't remember the
versions, although they're both quite recent). ISC claims binary
compatibility with Xenix (except for a few small things), and I was
pleasantly surprised to find they were correct. I can mount my Xenix
partition from ISC, include it in my path, and run all the tools I
have acquired and compiled under Xenix (including GNU Emacs, although
I haven't tried it with pty's and select(2)) no problem. In my case,
this saves me lots of disk space and software installation time.
