Do you believe that this person with lyrix expertise will want to spend 
the time to to read through all of the technical discussions which would 
occur in your proposed group comp.unix.sco?  Non technical users do not
want to read about the operating system either!

In the future you should refrain from dragging your version of the opinions 
of SCO into this discussion.  If SCO has anything to say on this subject
then the SCO news administrator or some other authorized representative 
of SCO can tell us how they feel on this subject.

Furthermore, if you want this group setup so SCO can support their products, 
then we are in the wrong section of the network.  Vendor sponsored support
groups belong in biz.* not in comp.*.
