Microsoft Xenix XP

O'Really's Exploiting Linux

Did you know Microsoft is believed to have been the largest *nix vendor on Earth in the 1980′s?

Yup, thanks to its Xenix operating system — of which is parodied on this fun little page simply entitled Xenix XP.

Scary thing is, I’m old enough to remember working on a Xenix platform for a short time.

It was actually a rather nasty implementation of the old SCO *nix, which also gave me some heartburn back in the day.

Both, IMHO, stood on all fours and howled at the moon.
