Univel headquarters building in Sandy, Utah

Univel was a joint venture of Novell and AT&T's Unix System Laboratories (USL) that was formed in 1991 to develop and market the Destiny desktop Unix operating system,[1] which was released in 1992 as UnixWare 1.0. Univel existed only briefly in the period between AT&T initially divesting parts of USL in 1991, and its eventual outright purchase by Novell, which completed in 1993.[2]
