Yep. I used to run ESIX on my home system in the erly '90s. Cost me
$1,300 back in the day for an unlimited user development system. At that
point, there weren't many options for Unix on a 386/486. SVR4 has all the
goodies: networking, X11, BSD utilities, compilers. Distributed by Everex.
I don't remember what format the disks are in.
