I just received several software packages from SCO, both of which
are purported to be SCO OPEN SERVER systems.

The first says:

netos	SA103-UX75-3.0.0
SCO OPEN Server Network System	512 user

The second says:

odtps	SA104-UX75-3.0.0
SCO OPEN Server Enterprise System  512 user

Does anybody have a clue as to what the differences are?

Thanks in advance.

With Release 3.0, SCO differentiated their product line into Desktop
products (under the Open Desktop banner) and Server Products (under the
Open Server banner).

Within the Open Desktop product line there are two products,
Open Desktop Lite and Open Desktop

Within the Open Server product line there are three products,
SCO UNIX, Network System and Enterprise System

Components in these products are:

Open Desktop Lite (OS, Graphical Environment (X11R5, Motif, X.Desktop), TCP/IP)
Open Desktop (OS, Graphical Environment, TCP/IP, NFS, Lan Manager Client,
DOS Merge (with MS/Windows 3.1 support))

Network System (OS, TCP/IP, NFS, IPX/SPX)
Enterprise System (OS, Graphical Environment, TCP/IP, NFS, IPX/SPX, Lan Manager
Client, PC-Interface, DOS Merge)

so, you have a:
>SCO OPEN Server Network System	512 user

and a:
>SCO OPEN Server Enterprise System  512 user

		       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.
