	Actually, I don't...Linux had a much quicker start into the Free
market...the *BSD crowd had to content with the almost year(?) of legal
deliberations as to whether or not they were even allowed to distribute
and work on it :(  Linux had no such problems, since Linux had no roots :)

	I believing the only "official" Unix is the one produced by the
company that this year has decided it wants to own the name, isn't it? :)

	Actually, my understanding is that its allowed to be called a
Posix-compliant Operating System... :)
