"The SCO Server Software Division, an independent business unit of the Santa Cruz Operation, Inc., announced that it has developed the Linux Kernel Personality (LKP) for UnixWare 7. The new LKP technology is a key step toward the vision of an Open Internet Platform (OIP), discussed in the recent announcement that Caldera plans to acquire the SCO Server Software and Professional Services Divisions."

"The new LKP technology unifies UnixWare 7 with Linux at the kernel level and also includes a complete Linux environment. This adds full Linux capabilities to UnixWare 7 while keeping all the major UNIX attributes such as scalability, reliability and clustering intact. Linux applications can install and run on UnixWare 7 without modification, resulting in the addition of a host of new solutions to the wealth of applications already available on UnixWare 7."

"The Linux Personality is great news for both the UnixWare 7 and enterprise Linux markets," said John Palmer, vice president of Marketing, Server Software Division, SCO. "LKP will make the entire Linux application portfolio available for UnixWare 7 customers, including enterprise server applications. At the same time LKP allows Linux customers to take advantage of a highly scalable and cluster-ready operating system based on the proven UnixWare 7 platform. Because the LKP runs at the kernel level, customers will not know it's there -- it will just work."
