OpenLook was clean. It wasn't as functional as CDE - CDE is an
improvement. However, you have not used a "Dog", until you run SCO 3, with
MWM on a slow 486, with and ISA video card. Ack. Ack. Nack even.

I don't know about the NIS that comes with Solaris 7, but before that, if
you wanted NIS & Shadowing/Aging, you had to use NIS+ - But with Solaris 7,
Sun have decided "OK, so it was a bad idea...were dropping it", so they may
have finally added the extra things to NIS...but don't count on it..
