ZDNet:SCO To Deliver Linux Compatibility

“Taking aim at small- to medium-sized businesses, The Santa Cruz
Operation (SCO) Inc. will announce next week the next version of
UnixWare 7, complete with a business edition configuration that
offers a new “Webtop” interface and the ability to run Linux apps
on UnixWare 7 servers.”

“The product is an especially pivotal release for SCO, which is
looking to shore up its channel against inroads from the
community-developed Linux operating system and Microsoft Corp.’s
omnipresent Windows. Already, at least two major Linux vendors have
specifically targeted SCO resellers for their own channel
programs.”

“SCO officials, however, say the open-source threat is not
damaging their business.”
