    Unix Source Code?

    Is the unix source code available for download anywhere?

    I've been browsing the internet, and all I've found is source code for BSD, Linux, and so on; but not for Unix! Is it still available or is it closed source?

    Unix is now SCO, and has been closed source since the early 1980's. It pretty much died in the dot com crash of the early 2000's. So it is both unavailable and closed source.

    The BSDs are direct descendants of the one and only UNIX..
