SCO, Caldera, Unixware Novell appears to be attempting to cut off SCO's lifeline to its cash reserves. By not focusing on the arguments over who owns what in Unix but instead hammering on the far more simple matter of SCO not living up to its business contract, Novell hopes to put a quick end to SCO and its seemingly endless Linux litigation.

"Don't confuse Linux with "desktop linux." Linux is strong force on the server side.

Also, don't forget that msft is insanely paranoid about the slighest chance of real competition. What Netscape that great a threat to msft?"


True enough on the server side. We use it here at work along with OpenBSD. We have one MS server that was put in before I got here.

Netscape kind of killed themselves off actually. I used Netscape myself until one thing happened, and that was that MS gave away the plugins for free, and to do something as simple as listen to an audio file one had to pay $29.99 in order to do the same for Netscape. Anyone else remember when you had to have Crescendo to do that? If Netscape had not gotten so cocky as to keep charging so much they could have won the browser war, although I will admit that MS sped things up a bit once they came out with IE 4. If Netscape could have kept up there are many of us I am sure who would have stayed with it, instead we went with the most for the least amount of money.
