"The acquisition of Santa Cruz Operations' Unix software and
services will help Caldera address weaknesses that have kept Linux
from mainstream use, Caldera chief executive Ransom Love said
"The acquisition, announced two weeks ago, gives Caldera the
ability to provide global sales, support and customization
services; an operating system that will work on heavy-duty servers;
and strong partnerships with software companies, Love said in a
keynote address today at the LinuxWorld Conference and Expo."
"In many areas, we are not even close to crossing the chasm"
and making Linux a mainstream operating system accepted by
corporate information technology managers, Love said. Linux has a
foothold in general-purpose servers and will expand to dominate
special-purpose server appliances, Love predicted."
