Could anyone provide me with the cost of SCO? Is it lots & lots or reasonable?

Any reason to run it over Linux? or Vice versa???

Thanks!
Matt

Lots and lots, and C compiler and NFS and such are all options for
lot sand lots more.

No.

Yes!

Seriously, Linux is vastly superior to SCO.. SCO is (or at least until
recently was) still based on SVR3 which is nearly a decade old.  The
only reason anyone would want to run SCO is because they feel safer if
they shell out some real bucks for their OS... kinda like having a
rabbit's foot on your keychain or something... ;-)

Yes.

Yes. It has msdos cross compiler. Still a better platform to do
msdos compiles than msdos itself.
I have to maintain our msdos software and that is the only thing
why I keep SCO still hanging around. Althoug moved into a junk 386sx.
If just linux could run SCO devsys I could junk the rest of SCO
finally and forever. Alternatively , if dosemu could run MSDOS compilers
transparently inside linux , it would put an end to our SCO too.

Strange, I have similar needs for having SCO around.  I am hoping the SCO
dev tools (command line compilers/linker/etc) could run under iBCS
emulation so that, with a little clever file system mapping, and perhaps a
script file or two, I could once and for all scrap that 300 meg millstone
from my other system.  In fact, that was originally going to be my weekend
project before '95 became available on my favorite ftp site :).

	I am told that one of the commercially available SCO applications
(someone from the company that did this can stand up and take credit,
if they want), is using SCO development tools under Linux to develop
their SCO application.  It is an X based application, and yes, they had
a spare license so they were not breaking any rules by doing this.  As
I recall, they had a /sco directory tree under which they did a chroot
so as to be able to transparently build their application.

	As a general rule, things like compilers, linkers, etc, do not
really tax the iBCS2 stuff very heavily.   For the most part, all they
do is file open/close/read/write/seek/stat, which we have been able
to handle quite easily.

Check out the VSYS bits in the iBCS release archive. It creates "virtual" 
systems by NFS mounting the target system's filesystems (but you could just 
copy them into place for a more permanent set up). You can then run commands 
under the virtual system. For instance "/OS/bin/sco -ksh" chroots in to my 
virtual SCO system and runs a login shell so I can use it as if I were 
actually there. "/OS/bin/sco cc -o prog prog.c" compiles a program using the 
SCO development system.

  I've done real work (building Informix 4GL (compiled) applications) like 
this - it used to be a good way of finding problems in iBCS but now it just 
works :-( (or :-) depending on your pointof view!).

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State 
Court of Utah for trade secrets misappropriation, tortious interference, 
unfair competition and breach of contract. The complaint alleges that IBM 
made concentrated efforts to improperly destroy the economic value of 
UNIX, particularly UNIX on Intel, to benefit IBM's Linux services 
business. See SCO vs IBM.
