Hey, did any of you know that SCO is a Unix company? When did that
happen? And apparently they are also upgrading their Unix. Apparently
they did it as a result of their resellers' requests, so they even have
resellers already. They're not just about lawsuits, apparently.

It's a myth. Santa Cruz Operation, uh ... Caldera, uh ... SCO Group, Inc.,
uh ... whatever their name is this week, does UNIX, uh ... OpenServer, uh
.... UnixWare, uh ... whatever the product de jour is this week, as a
sideline. They established the SCOsource division "to review and enforce its
intellectual property" where they stashed all their MBAs and lawyers. If you
can't build a competitive product with a competitive price, sue the
competition. Kind of hard to compete with the Linux price schedule when it's
free, so sue those that contributed to the Linux libraries.

Man, what a checkered history. Is SCO OpenServer still based on AT&T System
V?

It was the last time I played with it two years ago. Rock solid 2 compared
to Linux at that time.

Hi,

hehe... good one.

Systems based on the original AT&T System V/386 r3.0 and UnixWare System
V r4.0 releases (which describes all of SCO's non-Linux OS's) were never
stable, still aren't, and won't ever be, until they stop using the
Lachman TCP/IP stack.

Lachman's wild pointers corrupt the stack's "control block chain", and
then network freeze-up is just a matter of time after that. If you use
it in a docile workstation environment you may never notice the problem,
aside for a few lost connections here and there. In a busy network
environment, uptime is, let us say, very limited.

I used Linux 2 years ago, and well before that, without any of these
problems.

I've said "Friends don't let friends do SCO" years before the IP right
broohaha.
