"The new Caldera Systems, after its planned takeover of Santa Cruz Operation's Unix business, will combine the best of the worlds of Linux and Unix, said Caldera chief executive Ransom Love at a speech Monday morning -- and incidentally, it will give Caldera access to SCO's vast, worldwide distribution channel and installed customer base."

"Love, along with SCO president and chief executive Doug Michels, opened Forum 2000 (formerly SCO Forum) in Santa Cruz this week on an upbeat note, speaking of the opportunities both companies will gain after the sale is complete. SCO will retain only its Tarantella division -- which makes software for accessing applications through a Web browser -- and will rename itself Tarantella."

"Linux is the future, Love said, and the new Caldera will bring Linux' open source promise together with the traditional world of Unix boxes running in all levels of businesses all over the world. "Linux is marvellous technology at the low end, but it doesn't scale to the high end," Love said."
