"Caldera Systems Inc. will soon close its acquisition of SCO's
Unix business—and jump start its strategy of moving SCO
customers to Linux."
"Caldera is confident it can move SCO customers to Linux.
"We have brick-and-mortar businesses using Unix applications
today," said Ransom Love, Caldera president and CEO. "We can move
them to Linux and the Internet using Caldera
"Until customers migrate, Caldera, Orem, Utah, will offer Linux
as a low-end OS, with UnixWare as a high-end alternative for
customers who need more power and for those wary of open-source
software. SCO offers technology called Lxrun that lets Linux apps
run on UnixWare. Caldera also plans to migrate clustering
technology from UnixWare to Linux to make Linux more powerful."
