Yeah, I agree.  I personally think MS would release Xenix, as it no
longer has any commercial value whatsoever to them.  The hardest part
might be finding people within who know about it, and who can point
us in the right (legalese) direction.  Once MS signs off on it, the
people at SC(O)aldera won't have a problem with releasing the tapes.
