Yeah, but wouldn't that mean that SCO Unix had to be open sourced?  Or did
they buy the rights?

While I mostly can't believe anyone would want SCO Unix, I do know that 
they ran a lot of cash registers, or maybe they were the server, I dunno,
somehow point of sale and SCO was a thing a long time ago.  So maybe it
is a legacy thing?
