"The next 'Borealis' release of UnixWare gets only
comparative tweaks. The recently released version features the
'Linux Kernel Personality', which is SCO's better Linux than Linux
project we covered a year ago. Caldera showed slides in which Linux
applications on UnixWare bested standalone 'native' Linux
configurations, which our friends at Linux Journal labs have
corroborated. Thanks to very fine grained multi-threading and the
Veritas file system, UnixWare offers up to four times the
performance of native Linux boxes.
"In two to five years Linux will surpass where Unix is now,"
Having acquired the Unix-on-Intel franchise, then, Caldera has
bravely declared the franchise obsolete. The task its set itself is
persuading its customers that they'll be obsoleted more gracefully
by remaining inside the tent than out."
