Well, yeah, but who cares?
I (like, I suspect, a few others here), started my Unix experience on
SCO, and rarely have I been so relieved to put something behind me.
Going from Linux or Solaris to SCO Unixware is like going from a Rolls
to a Morris Minor - lots of things are missing, or in the wrong place,
or don't work right, or whatever... it always takes lots of horrid
little tweaks to get stuff to compile properly on it. All in all,
So, unless we're interested in trying to bankrupt SCO with international
shipping charges, there doesn't seem a hell of a lot of point to this.
SETI at domain Home runs happy on Linux - SCO must be getting desperate if they're
trying to give away copies of their OS just to run that...
