February 12, 1996 ... SCO is now accepting orders for the SCO UnixWare
2.1 Personal Edition. Upgrades from previous versions of UnixWare are
also orderable with supporting proof of purchase. Product and
availability information follow:


PRODUCT NAMES: SCO UnixWare 2.1 Personal Edition
SCO UnixWare 2.1 Processor Upgrade

DESCRIPTION: The SCO UnixWare 2.1 Personal Edition is a single-user
desktop/workstation configuration of UNIX System V Release 4.2MP
that does not accept user license upgrades. It can effectively be
used as a development workstation or as a highly-reliable client
platform for business critical client/server applications. In an
environment when frequent desktop reboots are not an option, the SCO
UnixWare 2.1 Personal Edition makes sense.

The SCO UnixWare 2.1 Processor Upgrade incrementally enables
additional processors beyond the supported 2-processors built-in to
the SCO UnixWare 2.1 Personal Edition.

Included with the SCO UnixWare 2.1 Personal Edition is a 30-day
evaluation version of SCO UnixWare 2.1 Advanced Merge. A fully-
functioning, non-evaluation version of SCO UnixWare 2.1 Advanced
Merge is optionally available.
