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."
