Check http://www3.sco.com/Company/Announce/p081996e.htm
for an announcement from SCO regarding their new free licencing of SCO
open server and soon or Unixware.

Any ideas on how this will affect the OS market?
Will this make any difference at all?
If SCO markets this well I think it could have a visible impact in the long term
survival of Unix.

Just to start a little flame war :-)) :

SCO and Unixware sucks, I wouldn't use them if I would GET some
money for using them.....

Gee... not even if it mean you would have, legally:

o	IBCS2 shared libraries
o	ELF linkable Motif headers and libraries
o	Mwm and other Motif programs that will run on any
	system capable of running IBCS2 code
o	A working X.desktop
o	A working sample implementation of Streams, with header
	files, for interoperability testing
o	A working SMP implementation to stare at
o	ActiveX and DLL support
o	A copy of Wintif
o	Visual Tcl
o	A sample GUI administration implementation
o	Email (Zmail?) and calendar programs
o	The install scripts missing from BSD and Linux IBCS2 support
o	A working NetWare file and print client sample

And so on...

At $0, or $19 with CDROM, the Motif alone is probably worth it...

Where is this list of featured published?  I looked at www.sco.com,
but I did not find any mention of what comes packaged with 
OpenServer.

Read the list of "what you get" from the SCO URL that was posted,
then look up each of the products seperately from their top level
page.

		       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.
