"Will SCO be contributing / open-sourcing any technology and/or
patents that it holds as part of its Linux adoption effort?..."
"McCrabb: SCO is accelerating its participation in, and
contributions to, the Open Source Community. In some cases, we will
be taking current technology that we think is needed in the Linux
market and driving it forward as the project maintainers.
Right now, we are focusing on bringing some of our high-performance
Intel development tools to Linux."
"In other cases, we will make some sources available as
reference documents, without a specific intention of driving them
forward as projects. For instance, we think there is an interest in
seeing the source to lex and yacc under an Open Source license --
but as flex and bison are already active projects, we see no value
in our making a competitive investment. Someone else would be
welcome to pick them up, if they saw a need."
"There is no doubt that the low cost of Linux is a factor in
creating new market demand. There is a solid interest among larger
companies who want to take advantage of the Linux momentum. In
general, larger businesses are less sensitive to price as a primary
factor in deploying an OS. These businesses are more interested in
criteria like reliability, availability, and scalability."
