Rumors of SCOs Death Greatly Exaggerated
SCO CEO Darl McBride insists in a letter to customers and partners that SCO is not really in dire financial danger. (Linux-Watch)In early January, rumors began spreading that The SCO Groupas a consequence of poor business, Novells demands for a share of SCOs Sun and Microsoft Unix deals, and the ever-mounting costs of SCOs IBM lawsuitwas nearing bankruptcy. In response to all this, SCO CEO Darl McBride has countered, "To paraphrase a line from Mr. Twain, the rumors of our death have been greatly exaggerated." McBride defended his companys financial position Jan. 12 in a letter to SCOs partners and customers. The letter has also been filed with the SEC.
In it, McBride indicated that SCOs core Unix business was still strong. "In recent years we have provided you with key new releases of UnixWare 7.1.4 and OpenServer 6."
