I don't think there ever was "free" unix, but there was Unixware/OpenServer...

Sadly you've missed it by 13 years...


I'd say troll craigslist New York & ebay... it turns up from time to
time in the neighbourhood of $25-150 or so...  I think I paid $100 for
my 7.0.1 ...

It seems that anyone who sold SYSV, except for SUN(Oracle) IBM is
basically out of the market, even if they are still in business..
