[LUG] re: You owe SCO Unix 500 quid!
just to add a bit to the SCO unix stuff, the $800 is per machine and SCO
have said the following about Linux,
<<Prior to IBM's involvement, Linux was the software equivalent of a
bicycle. Unix was the software equivalent of a luxury car.
It is not possible for Linux to rapidly reach Unix performance standards
for complete enterprise functionality without the misappropriation of Unix
code, methods or concepts to achieve such performance, and coordination by
a larger developer, such as IBM.
Redesigning Linux for use by demanding business customers is not
technologically feasible or even possible at the enterprise level without
(a) a high degree of design coordination, (b) access to expensive and
sophisticated design and testing equipment; (c) access to Unix code and
development methods; (d) Unix architectural experience; and (e) a very
significant financial investment.>>
so there you go, get your licence money ready...
