This sounds like what I would expect:  *this* software on *one* machine.
If "the system" means "no other logins", then that would be strange, but
if "the system" means ODT proper, then that is no different, as I said before
from only myself being able to use X-windows on my workstation.  Other people
can telnet to me, but they can't use the windowing software like I can.  This
doesn't surprise me.

Since you didn't try it, you don't know.  If ODT *does* keep other logins
out, that's bad news.  And what would be the point?  Maybe someone from SCO
would comment?
