There are at least two *NIXes that run on the Pro.
There are apparently patches for 2.9BSD available
that allow that version to run on the Pro. I don't
have any experience with that.
There are two versions of Venix that run on the Pro.
1) Venix/Pro came directly from Venturecom.
It exists in Version 1 and Version 2.
2) Pro/Venix came from DEC, but was a slight
rework of Venix originally from Venturecom.
I.e., DEC worked over Venix/Pro and issued a
version itself called Pro/Venix.
Venix/Pro versions 1 and 2 are available from the
archives at ftp.update.uu.se. This means, ostensibly,
that Venix/Pro is in the "public domain". Pro/Venix
could also be in the public domain, subject to the
Ancient Unix License, since it originates from Version
7 and System III from AT&T. Bob Supnick, who was at
DEC, once stated he saw no reason why it couldn't be
a part of the PUPS archive under the AU License.
I have an incomplete set of Pro/Venix. A couple of
the floppies are bad. I would like to find a copy
of Pro/Venix that is installable, as it is more
flexible than Venix/Pro. If anyone out there has
any Pro/Venix floppies, I'd be grateful to hear about
