"Caldera will develop integrated applications, operating systems and management software during the coming months in order to "streamline" products and achieve profitability, not axe products to save money as expected.

That's according to the loss-making company's president and chief executive Ransom Love who told ComputerWire that a decision announced earlier this month to "streamline" products would not see products shelved, particularly older versions of UnixWare and OpenServer or its desktop Linux. Love said the server operating systems are important because of their sizable customer base, especially UnixWare.

In an exclusive interview, Love insisted that Caldera's decision to streamline will actually see its Unix and Linux software integrated through the development of common services, management and deployment - a task that is now the focus of Caldera's research and development work. Love said he believes integration can drive Caldera into profitability because customers want software that can be installed out-of-the-box and managed at a low cost."
