Ow. No, scratch that, splat and no ow whatsowever.

As for SCO - the old SCO was crap, not evil. The old Caldera weren't too 
bad either, they were just trying to deal with the reality of running a 
company in a low-margin market that just wasn't big enough for more than 
one big player (RH). Maybe it is now?

The new Caldera/SCO is a company that's mostly ravening vampire-lawyer, 
and we all know about them.

The point here - it's what SCO/Caldera has become after a total change 
of management that's evil.

That said, anybody who CHOOSES to pay for UnixWare/OpenServer now must 
be on a particularly good grade of crack. *uggh*. I look with such 
pleasure toward retiring our SCO box...
