"With Caldera's acquisition of the pair of SCO units due to become final in October, Santa Cruz, Calif.-based SCO will take on the Tarantella name as its official corporate identity, SCO said Monday. Both the renaming and the purchase of SCO's two businesses for $7 million in cash and 28 percent of Caldera's stock depend on shareholder and regulatory approval."

"In an effort to bring Unix into the Linux business market, SCO Monday said it has developed the Linux Kernel Personality (LKP) for UnixWare 7. While keeping the major Unix attributes intact, the LKP technology helps unify UnixWare with Linux at the kernel level and includes a complete Linux environment. Additionally, Linux applications can be installed and run on UnixWare 7 without the need for modification -- features the company said will give users a chance to utilize Linux applications and middleware."

"Additionally, SCO's Server Software division on Monday promoted a suite of enterprise support services to help customers with business and time-critical problems. Compaq and Unisys have agreed to implement these services and will have SCO train and certify IT professionals on UnixWare 7 and UnixWare 7 NonStop Clusters software. Compaq and Unisys will sweeten the deal by giving business-critical support to SCO customers, the pair said in a statement."
