PizzaNet – commercially licensed and bundled Internet Operating System

Pizza1

Santa Cruz Operation – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

In August 1994 SCO and Pizza Hut announced PizzaNet, “a pilot program that enables computer users, for the first time, to electronically order pizza delivery from their local Pizza Hut restaurant via the worldwide Internet.”

PizzaNet was based on the first commercially licensed and bundled Internet Operating System, SCO Global Access. SCO was the first commercial Unix System supplier to license the powerful NCSA Mosaic hypertext, NCSA HTTPd and the first to ship these technologies from the National Center for Supercomputing Applications at the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana bundled with an OS for commercial use.

  1. I had totally forgot how ugly the Mosaic client and most early HTML documents where. Thanks for reminding me 🙂

  2. @Per: Ah, but we didn’t know any better in those days. It all seemed so new and glorious that looks didn’t matter so much.

  3. Oh, don’t forget gopher, now that output was uglier than html. The National Cancer Institute put up cancer info on gopher before TBL had gotten http up.

  4. I remember running SCO Unix on a Compaq Systempro with dual 386/33 processors in the late 80’s. I think it had a whopping 28MB of RAM. We all thought it was a PC with delusions of mainframehood.

    Thing took a million years to boot and sounded like a vaccum cleaner.
