Xenix IBM PC 1.00

Xenix was the variant of UNIX originally published by Microsoft, later sold to SCO. It added a variety of technical enhancements over System V Unix, including a menu-driven business shell. It was ported to many different platforms from a PDP-11 including the Altos 8600 (First x86 port), IBM PC, Intel System 86, TRS-80 Model 16, SCP Gazelle II, and Apple Lisa.

Software products include: The Xenix Software Development System, Microsoft Multiplan 2.x and Microsoft Multiplan 3.x, Microsoft Word 3.0 and Microsoft Word 5.x, and FoxBase Plus 1.00

Please note that version numbering is all over the place depending on the vendor.

Wanted: More ports for different platforms.

IBM PC Xenix 1.00 is based on Microsoft Xenix 3.0, which is based on AT&T Unix System III.
