"The 51 employees who lost their jobs in the latest round of layoffs at Caldera International include a programmer who helped lead a key part of the company's strategy of making its Linux and Unix operating systems work in the same way.

Juergen G. Kienhoefer helped write the Linux Kernel Personality (LKP) software, which lets Linux programs run unmodified on Caldera's higher-end Open Unix software.

The software is a key part of the company's strategy to minimize the complexity of selling several operating systems. In fact, Caldera announced Tuesday that the Linux version of the Oracle 9i database software has been certified to run on Open Unix."
