Did Caldera make a serious misstep in its acquisition of SCO? This article includes correspondence from a SCO reseller who says Linux binary compatibility with SCO is cannibalizing not only SCO sales, but damaging Caldera's Linux business because of Red Hat's superior name recognition.
"If our correspondent is remotely correct, Caldera needs to do some urgent, high profile rebranding of its Linux distros. Assuming that SCO's reseller channel would simply become Caldera resellers always was one of the shakier points of the merger. Caldera could discover that in a business as competitive as PC Unix, keeping its new VARs happy is as thankless as herding cats."
