In an otherwise unhappy week for the company, Caldera has something to be happy about: it's sold 4,000 OpenUnix licenses to McDonalds. McDonalds joins fast food luminaries KFC, Taco Bell, and Pizza Hut as OpenUnix customers.

"McDonald's is hungry for Unix. Sources say the fast-food giant is set to order 4,000 OpenUnix licenses from Caldera International (NASDAQ:CALD) . An official announcement from both companies is expected within a few weeks.

Sources say McDonald's will use OpenUnix (formerly known as SCO UnixWare) and IBM's MQSeries to track data and crunch financial information across its restaurants.

OpenUnix is relatively popular within the fast-food industry. Sources close to Caldera note that KFC, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell all are major OpenUnix customers."
