UnixWare

(operating system)
Novell's implementation of Unix System 5 heavily based on Release 4.2 but with enhancements and new bundled products.

In 1993 Novell acquired Unix Systems Laboratories from AT&T along with the Unix trademark. UnixWare was the result of Novell's efforts to make Unix interoperable with Novell NetWare.

In 1995 Novell sold UnixWare and the rights to the Unix operating system to SCO at a time when UnixWare was gainnig popularity. It was later the first 64-bit operating system on the Intel platform, and, in 1999, is the world's fastest-growing commercial operating system.

UnixWare

A server operating system for the Intel platform from UnXis (formerly The SCO Group). It is based on Unix System V Release 4.2MP and includes SMP support for two processors with optional support for up to 32. As of UnixWare 2.1, it includes NetWare 4.1 file, print and directory services. UnixWare Personal Edition used to be the client version which came with the Mosaic Web browser.

UnixWare was originally developed by Univel, a joint venture of Novell and AT&T's Unix System Labs (USL). In 1993, Novell purchased USL and UnixWare and sold it to SCO two years later. See UnixWare 7, OpenServer and SCO.
