    I happened to come across a copy of SCO Professional for Xenix, a 1-2-3
    clone from 1988. It works pretty well, but until I tried it out I was
    under the impression it was a licensed port not a clone!

    The reason I thought it was licensed is because I know there was a Xenix
    port of 1-2-3 announced:

    https://books.google.com/books?id=tjwEAAAAMBAJ&pg=PA51#v=onepage&q&f=false

    Was the official Xenix port ever released?

    The menu layout in procalc is identical to 1-2-3 2.x, but the word
    "lotus" never appears anywhere. This is the welcome message procalc
    prints when you start it up, in case anyone is curious:
