SCO, Caldera, Unixware On April 29, SCO will finally have its day in court, but not exactly in the way the Unix and Linux litigation company had planned. If things had gone the way SCO wanted, it would be facing IBM to see how much money it would get for IBM using Unix code in Linux. Instead of that fantasy coming true, SCO will be trying to hang on to what's left of its assets from Novell.

Free daylight savings time patch.

Free? Really? No charge?

After the customer buys an OpenServer license, they find out that if they want a C compiler, they have to buy it. If they want to mirror their disks... they have to buy the capability. Not sure about today, but back when I supported it, you also had to pay if you wanted to use SCO Vision to make disk and printer shares available to windows clients, or to print to windows clients. And you had to pay for "Enterprise Server" rather than "Host System" if you wanted a TCP/IP stack. You see, operating systems are rocket science. And SCO deserves to be compensated for all the time and money they have invested in the R&D which make these advanced capabilities possible.

So this free patch is a true act of generosity on their part. No doubt, it is intended as a gift from SCO to its loyal customers.

But... isn't it coming a bit late?
