AIUI Atari UNIX never shipped as a product, so that’s academic; nobody
knows what they would have charged. I’m not sure about this, though.

But the “big 3” alternative home computer platforms of the 1980s all
offered a UNIX — Acorn RISC-iX, Commodore Amiga UNIX and Atari UNIX.
None caught on — they were vastly expensive for home users, and the
machines were seen as toys by professionals using SUN workstations and
so on.
