This overview of the SCO situation is interesting. I remember back when SCO was one of the few vendors who actually sold and supported a commercial UNIX on PC hardware. I actually got my hands on a copy and installed it -- and found that even back in the mid-1990's, Linux was a better Unix than SCO's product in certain ways. I remember thinking even then that SCO had better get into a different line of work because their UNIX business was doomed. Of course, I thought the same of Sun and SGI: but Sun continues to do well with their own UNIX variant, and SGI has long since moved the core of their business to Linux...and SGI was always more of a hardware company than a software company anyway.
