I believe that a direct descendent of KeyKOS was released by Agorics (RIP)
under an open source license. Every time I try to give it a name, I get
told, "Oh no, that's not the name. That name has IP problems."

Perhaps, borrowing from U2, Agorics should be called, "The place where the
systems have no name." :-)

Norm Hardy knows more about it than I do.

Cheers - Bill
