Any body could lend me Unix CDs? (SCO or any flavours)?
There are two worlds 1) free and 2) non-free. In the `non-free' world
of which SCO is a part of, sharing or rather lending the distribution
CDs is compared to `boarding a ship and killing guys'. They say that
<rolling on the floor with laughter> Dude, you really are the dramatic
one, aren't you ?
Anyway, if you read his mail carefully, he said he was willing to pay
for a proper, boxed, legal version - he didn't ask you to share your
copy of whatever OS you run.
Enter the world of Free Software by using GNU/Linux. You can learn
and this mailing list would help you help yourselves. Free Software
is about sharing and learning how a program works, do visit
http://www.gnu.org/ and also http://fsf.org.in/
None of which of course, give you a complete OS. He probably wants to
start off with a Linux distro which ships the _kernel_ without which you
have nothing :-)
