"The surprise settlement of the private antitrust action by Caldera Inc of Utah against Microsoft has increased the possibility that there may now be a settlement of the unrelated antitrust action brought by the US Department of Justice."

"In 1996, Caldera purchased DR-DOS, a serious rival to the MS-DOS operating system, from Novell for $400,000. DR-DOS was originally developed in Hungerford, England, by Digital Research, which was subsequently acquired by Novell."

"Caldera inherited the right to sue Microsoft for alleged anti-competitive actions against DR-DOS when it was a rival to MS-DOS in Windows 3.1."
