Not a clone.  MS worked on porting AT&T System III UNIX to Intel cpus.
It was called XENIX.  You could run multi-user UNIX on 8086, 80186, 80286, 
Eventually they sold the stuff to SCO.  IE: SCO XENIX

It is amazing to see 3 users running XENIX on an Altos computer on a 8086 
Tandy also used XENIX on their 16B computers which ran on 68000
