Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"SCO is announcing to the world that its UNIX assets are for
sale. Here's the press release on PR Newswire. It describes itself
as "a leading provider of UNIX software technology." It says it is
selling "substantially all" of its UNIX business, "including
certain UNIX system V software products and related services". Hmm.
""Our goal is to ensure continued viability for SCO, its
customers, employees and the UNIX technology," said Nielsen.
"As you have witnessed in the past decade as SCO has sued one
customer after another, ensuring continued customer viability has
always been at the top of SCO's bucket list and close to its noble
heart. My question is, might the timing of all this be connected
with the rumored sale of Novell? Not to be cynical, but with SCO, I
always assume there will be vultures.
"Update: It occurs to me that if you are new, you might wonder
about all this. So, for context, here is where you can find the SCO
motion to sell the assets, along with a list of what you get, and
here is an article on various entities that have reserved rights on
this proposed deal, and here's where the hearing on the motion is
reported on and where you can also find the judge's order approving
the sale, subject to all the possible objections that were
mentioned at the hearing."
