In the early 1980s, a bunch of French researchers set out to build a clone
of UNIX/V7 in Pascal (using a ukernel IIRC). The project was the SOL
project [Gien, 1983]. I believe it eventually begat the Chorus system
(which was C++); which UI was going to use for System V/R5 before it all
1) Does anyone know what happen to SOL? Was it finished, deployed, used
2.) Did the sources and doc survive (and who owns the IP)? I think those
should be in the TUHS archives, as I think this was the first attempt at a
rewrite of UNIX in something other than C (or assembler).
3.) On a similar thought, did the Chorus code survive and who owns the IP?
