SCO, Caldera, Unixware Having almost disappeared completely late last year, SCO says it has been resuscitated by a new financing plan. Under the terms of the deal, Stephen Norris Capital Partners and "its partners from the Middle East" will supply up to $100 million, enabling SCO to reorganize and launch a new series of products. SNCP will gain a controlling interest in the company, and take it private, allowing it to slip out of Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. Update: As part of the reorganisation, Darl McBride will be let go. Buried in the proposed MOU (Memorandum of Understanding) between Unix vendor and Linux litigator SCO and SNCP is the note that "upon the effective date of the Proposed Plan of Reorganization, the existing CEO of the Company, Darl McBride, will resign immediately."

Where's the downside for Darl McBride?

Darl has already pulled down some serious coin from SCO, Ikon, Novell, SBI, and others. People who were hoping to see him selling pencils in the airport or washing windshields at traffic lights are going to be sorely disappointed. He'll move on to something new and different. Same old, same old, keep moving, folks...
