This is the same product SCO aquired from Vultus, essentially wrote off as a failed investment in the SEC filings and is now selling again. Oh, it is also something they bought using stock which had an inflated value due to Darl threatening the world.

It's not a good idea to become a customer of a company that sues it's customers.

What type of morons do they expect to buy this or any other product they sell?

Advice to SCO: Break the company up. Abandon te SCO name and any variation of SCO. Change the name of the new divisions. Sell them. Move on.

Advice to employees of SCO over the last year: Don't mention SCO on your resume. I can tell you right now I will make damn certian that you are not hired in the company I work for if I find out you were supporting that company and didn't move on when it was obvious that they were up to no good (1+ years ago).

Thanks to SCO's reputation among the computing community, it will be automatically written off by nearly everyone as terrible, and the world will never know if it was actually a decent product...

Way to go, SCO. Your engineers can now do their jobs but nobody cares!

Um SCO doesn't have any more engineer's. At least ones with enoughtime to deal with this. Since this FiaSCO started SCO has fired 25% of their workforce, and that number is increasing every quarter(down to ~160 now). You don't roll out a new product by firing the build team.

This is designed to suck as much money out of SCO as quickly as possible so that SCO will be forced to declare bankruptcy. This is to hide assests and cash from bankruptcy judge. The question is now will they be allowed to due just that?

Bankruptcy does not mean that the lawsuits will go away. Novell's claims against SCO for unpaid licensing fees do not disappear in bankruptcy. And, yes, the bankruptcy court will investigate any pre-filing money laundering.
