To old BTL or AT&T folks or anyone else who might know.

I wonder. IBM introduced the IBM PC in August of 1981. That was years after
a non-memory managed version of Unix was created by Heinze Lycklama, LSX.
Is anyone on this list familiar with Bell Labs management thoughts on
selling IBM on LSX rather than "dos"? While the anti-trust settlement was a
couple years in the future, someone at AT&T must have been thinking about
possibilities after a breakup.
