This question is motivated by the posters for whom FreeBSD is not Unix
Probably the best known contribution of the Berkeley branch of Unix is
the sockets API for IP networking. But today, if for no other reason
than the X/Open group of standards, sockets are the preferred networking
API everywhere, even on true AT&T derived UNIX variants. So they must
have been merged back at some point, or reimplemented. My question is,
when and how did that happen?
And if there isn't a simple answer because it happened at different
times and in different ways for each variant, all the better :-)

Do obvious transformation on domain to reply privately _only_ on Usenet.
