    They forgot INTERACTIVE Unix! This is/was a Kodak Company. When word
    gets out, they may even sue Kodak. They claim that any form of
    Unix (whatever that is), now belongs to them because one of their
    predecessors purchased a license. Get this, it was a non-exclusive
    license even!

    Maybe they think all Judges are stupid?? Probably not, it's likely
    just the death throes of a company that drank a fatal dose of corruption.

    FYI, I noticed an unauthorized reproduction of some of my code. It
    used a variable, "i", in a "for" loop. Maybe I should go buy a lawyer.
    I can show that only persons who had been previously been poisoned
    by FORTRAN would ever use such a variable name. This certainly
    points to me.
