SCO, Caldera, Unixware SCO has published a statement after the court ruling in their case against Novell: "The company is obviously disappointed with the ruling issued last Friday. However, the court clearly determined that SCO owns the copyrights to the technology developed or derived by SCO after Novell transferred the assets to SCO in 1995." And at the end: "Although the district judge ruled in Novell's favor on important issues, the case has not yet been fully vetted by the legal system and we will continue to explore our options with respect to how we move forward from here."

SCO has a dead in the water mobile middleware thing and UnixWare. SCO has spent millions litigating while UnixWare is unchanged for the last six or seven years. Let's look at what you get for $699 per CPU:

X11R5 (Not R6, no X.org). Yes you can run X11R6 with KDE but only via the Linux Kernel Personality.

GCC stuck at 2.95

Userland tools that haven't been updated since 2000. No drivers for anything later than 2000, if that.

For all SCO's crying about Linux having their IP and hurting their sales, they have done NOTHING to improve their product. Zero. Their business became litigation.

Once UnixWare was a respected Unix. Now it is a museum exhibit.
