“In the latest example of the uninhibited flow of money toward
all things Linux, software company Caldera Systems has received a
$30 million investment from Sun Microsystems and other major
computing companies.”

Other investors in the Linux seller include Unix seller
Santa Cruz Operation (SCO), network software seller Novell, thin
client software seller Citrix, and venture firms Chicago Venture
Partners and Egan-Managed Capital, Caldera Systems announced
today.

“The cash infusion will help Orem, Utah-based Caldera keep its

Linux-related companies have received tens of millions of dollars
from their initial public offerings in recent months, and Caldera
is considering an IPO of its own.”
