It doesn't even work fine with the Wangtek - as there is no way to format
a tape (it appears on a menu under sysadm - but doesn't work).

Wasn't the ACER file system the one reviewed in Unix Review against
ISC?  I believe so and in the review ISC's throughput is still hotter
than SCO Unix.
Is SCO planning on porting the ACER file system over to their Xenix
