"SCO Unix weathered the Intel Unix wars of the 1980s and early
1990s. SCO Unix survived Microsoft Windows. What SCO Unix may not
have been able to survive on its own, though, was Linux."
"The result? Caldera Systems (Nasdaq: CALD), a leading Linux
distributor, is on the verge of buying SCO's Server--aka,
Unix--division for a price expected to be north of $70 million in
stock, according to multiple sources claiming familiarity with
terms of the deal-in-progress."
"If the deal goes through, Caldera will become the proud
owner of the operating system that made SCO: its Unix system, SCO
OpenServer 5. Caldera also will get UnixWare 7.0, which is one of
the foundation technologies for Project Monterey, the IBM-SCO
version of Unix that the two are targeting at Intel's Itanium
processor. In addition, Caldera is set to obtain Vision2K,
SCO's technology for bringing Network File System (NFS), terminal
emulation, and X-Window applications to Microsoft Windows
