"LSN - How would you differentiate Caldera's product offerings from that of its major competitors? Is your focus almost exclusively on eBusiness, and how do you define eBusiness, or are you targeting the broader market including enterprise, clusters, embedded, etc.?"

"Love - ...Open Source software, like Linux, will dominate this space because it facilitates the greatest degree of optimization. When we say that we are Linux for eBusiness, we mean that we will be the dominant provider of this new eBusiness infrastructure of specialized servers and clients. Rather than just packaging Linux, Caldera builds Linux products that address the OEM and eSolution Providers that are deploying these specialized devices."

"Caldera is still the only Linux Company to apply commercial development practices to open source so that all other source and binaries match. This allows the OEM or eSolution Providers to better optimize the OS for the application or hardware device and reduces support. The fact that Caldera continues to win nearly all of the reviews and product comparisons is validation of this approach."
