SCO, Caldera, Unixware The Nasdaq market has delisted The SCO Group, the Linux-seller-turned-Linux-litigant now in Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. The company's shares were taken off the Nasdaq because of the bankruptcy proceedings, the company said Thursday in a statement. The company had appealed Nasdaq's decision to do so but lost its appeal on December 21, the company said in a regulatory filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

It's a bad end for the SCO name

Before 2001, SCO was synonymous of a driving force for the evolution of the Unix OSs.

Then SCO sold the Unix trademark to Caldera, who renamed itself into SCO Group. The old SCO was renamed to Tarantella Inc.

The SCO Group, wanting to make believe everyone that they have the rights over the copyrighted source code of Unix, started its catastrophic legal battles against IBM and others. Very soon, Novell clarified the situation indicating that the Unix OS itself was not part of the deal for Caldera.

And now this, my condolences for the remaining people in Tarantella of the old SCO who never guessed that its old name would be finish so deep in the mud.
