Linux ServerWatch writes about the slow but sure death of UNIX by the onslaught of Linux and customers moving from older proprietary UNIX systems to commercially supported open source enterprise Linux distributions. "Linux does have one killer feature that is driving the switch: lower cost. Many companies are discovering Linux to be extremely attractive from a cost perspective. Take the experience of Sabre, a travel company that replaced Solaris with Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) running on x86 machines, resulting in lowering costs 90 percent (with a three-fold speed gain to boot). These potential cost savings, which include hardware maintenance costs savings, are not to sniffed at."

It's is explicit and perfectly understandable , you said that SCO (santa cruz operation ) was not responsible for taking out Caldera as SCO and that the "Shady" Canopy group was responsible.

Neither are true ... But then you got that part ...

"My original post was about a very different company."

NO , the Santa Crux organization and SCO are the same company ... Not with exactly the same people , but still the same company.

"I'm not sure I really care to argue over Caldera"

There is nothing to argue here it's recorded history.

"They were never my *favorite* Linux company."

So for that your trying to change SCO recorded history ? Your loyalty and former liking of the santa cruz organization might be seen as admirable for others , but your history rewriting as no place here.

"I *think* we're still kind of on topic here. "

You don't think very hard here ...

"And apologize to those who may reasonably disagree. "

Disagree with history ? No they insanely disagree with reality that GNU/Linux won by itself and that Unix is not GNU/Linux as not helped it now or in the past , neither did BSD and that there not united.

Some people including yourself have trouble with people who are gonna disagree with them. Even more so when those people introduce a reality they don't like.
