  I was thinking the same thing. I was also wonder what compilier
  SCO is going to compile there apps packages with?

  If it going to be compiled with MSC that it's got to go through
  the 286/386 emulator and that slows things down. At least I 
  notice it. It would be great if SCO offers packages compiled
  with your choice of compilier.
